In a Southern California neighborhood ravaged by foreclosure, two couples struggle with the balance between friendship and crossing the line.

Foreclosure was a finalist and of three selections chosen for the Theater Resources Unlimited's TRU Voices New Plays Reading Series.

His work has been produced and developed at numerous festivals and workshops including the Guthrie, Humana Festival, Children's Theatre Company and Orlando Shakespeare Festival, among others. A Jerome Commission, Heideman, and Virtual Theatre Project New Play Award recipient, Delaney's work Ampersand won the 2012 Reva Shiner Award from the Bloomington Playwrights Project.

The Roy Arias Off-Broadway Theater is located at 300 West 43rd Street, Suite 500. Reservations are required and can be placed by calling (212) 714-7628.
