CAFE PLAY Will Transform Historic Cornelia Street Cafe Into Immersive Wonderland

This Is Not A Theatre Company's Café Play explores everything from the customers to the waitstaff to the cockroach on the floor, offering a unique glimpse into the lives of New Yorkers in a cafe. Scenes run the gamut from the hilarious to the profound and transformative. Breakfast performances (10:30am) include coffee and a breakfast pastry; lunch performances (12:30pm) include a light lunch (salad); afternoon tea performances (3:00pm) include tea and a pastry; late night performances (10:30pm) include a glass of Cornelia Street's signature wine.

This Is Not A Theatre Company's past productions include: Pool Play 2.0, which The New York Times called "A buoyant daydream of a show...joyous...thoughtful... surprisingly rewarding;" Versailles 2016, a Voice Choice that was described as "an hors d'oeuvre plate of scenes that collectively...have a message about elitism and the vanity of apathy;" and Ferry Play; A Serious Banquet; Readymade Cabaret; and Subway Plays, which have been featured in The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, American Theatre magazine, New York Theatre Review, and Theater is Easy.

Café Play is conceived and directed by Erin B. Mee with scenes by Jenny Lyn Bader, Jessie Bear, Erin B. Mee, and Colin Waitt, and choreography by JoNathan Matthews. It features Trinity Bobo, Caitlan Lattimer, JoNathan Matthews, Jimmy Schatz, Jessica-Brittany Smith, and Amanda Thickpenny. And the cockroach.
