Christina Masciotti's SOCIAL SECURITY Runs Through This Weekend at Bushwick StarrChristina Masciotti's SOCIAL SECURITY Runs Through This Weekend at Bushwick Starr
by BWW News Desk - Mar 14, 2015

The Bushwick Starr and terraNOVA Collective are proud to present the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Christina Masciotti's newest work, Social Security. The play centers on June, a retired pretzel factory worker, who finds herself deaf after forty years with machines, widowed, and stranded in the urban muck of Reading, PA. She forges ahead gamely, aided by her robust will to find the good in life, and attended, for better or worse, by a few neighbors. Her landlord, once a community pillar, insinuates himself into what remains of her affairs with Machiavellian panache, while a younger neighbor from down the block selflessly chaperones her trips to the grocery store. But June, generous in her affections and unworldly-wise, seesaws between these two unlikely alliances, and her yearning for ordinary human companionship only drives her further into danger. (more...)
