The Water Carriers, a deeply-moving family drama with music by South African playwright, Michael Williams, brings to life African legends, Sunjata and The Tree of Life, to help tell the very timely and turbulent tale of six refugees stowed away in a shipping container bound for who-knows-where.
Set in one small place, this powerful story reveals the immensity of a global crisis... which cannot be ignored.
Director Tom Marion is an assistant professor at York College in Queens.
The Midtown International Theatre Festival returns for another summer of quality stage works. New York's oldest continuing theater festival will present 100 plays in 23 days.
One of the leading reasons to visit New York in the summer is the theater - from Shakespeare in the Park to the best of Broadway. New York is also known for its amazing theater festivals. This year, the venerable Midtown International Theatre Festival takes its place as the oldest continuing summer arts festival in New York. To usher in this honor, producer John Chatterton presents nearly 100 new and fascinating live stage works - plays, musicals, variety acts, short plays, solo projects, and so much more.
