Description

In a provocative and poignant drama about hope trumping polarization, an exorbitant rent increase forces Harold Wilson, a gruff conservative African American in his late 60s, to close his East Village newsstand after 30 years and reluctantly retire to Florida with his niece Carol. Enter Albie Sands, an eccentric homeless 1960s Jewish radical, who persuades Harold to fight the landlord. Overcoming anti-Semitism, Harold and Albie form an unlikely yet powerful friendship to confront corporate greed and their own mortality.


Almost 13

At this time we are doing early work in preparation of taking Almost 13, written and performed by Joan Kane and directed by Bruce A! Kraemer to the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We also plan to present it in the East to Edinburgh Festival at 59e59 theaters in early August.
