PENINSULA tells the story of Tiago, a young man who escaped the poverty-stricken slums of Rio de Janeiro, now working as a migrant in a seemingly peaceful summer town in Northern Michigan's wine country. A visceral exploration of shifting identity, power and desire, PENINSULAexplodes with poetry, sensuality, and danger.

PENINSULA began development in 2008 as part of playwright Nathan Wright's MFA thesis at Columbia University, where it was presented as a staged reading directed by Hal Brooks and starring Vincent Piazzo as Tiago. PENINSULA was further developed during the summer of 2012 through a workshop production directed by Nadia Foskolou at Manhattan Repertory Theatre.

Presented by In Absentia Productions, PENINSULA has production design by Drew Florida. The General Manger is Dean A. Carpenter / D.A.C. Productions, LLC; and Christina Franklin is the Production Stage Manager.
