The synopsis is as follows:

The Planet's been near abandoned by the species that once resided there, having found Earth and moved much of their population to where the grass is greener. Permanently. Those left behind are the ones who cannot afford passage, left in ruins of human attractions and peeling advertisements. Late Halloween night, Sedona is working the concession stand of the rundown attraction The Movie Theater, as the only two visitors of the day come to her with a plan.

Strangers in a City is written and directed by Steph Prizhitomsky and stars Ann Marie Taglavore as Sedona, Carlos D. Rodriguez as Ollie, and Yelyzaveta Pryzhytomska as Blue.

Ann Marie has performed in Off-Broadway showcases, student directed theatre, has secured lead roles in short films, as well as voice acting work. Ann Marie has received training from The Barrow Group, Soho Shakes, and Beginnings Academy. Ann Marie graduated from Towson University (2020) majoring in Psychology-Sociology with a minor in Theatre Arts. In the midst of a global pandemic, Ann Marie wrote, directed, produced, and starred in her own comedy web series, "The Almost Cast", a part-improv part scripted satire about the journey to becoming an actor.

Carlos is a Queens, NY native who loves learning about and experiencing stories of all walks of life, which is why he became an actor. He recently graduated from Queens College's Drama & Theater program. When he's not frantically searching Backstage or Central Casting for great opportunities like this one, he reads mystery books, picks through boxes of plantains for the largest and heaviest fruits to make his Dominican ancestors proud, and indulges in his guilty pleasure- oreos!

Yelyzaveta or Lisa for short is an 11 year old first time actor from Dnipro Ukraine. She came to the US in early June after spending several months in Poland as a refuge and will be making her NYC stage debut in Strangers in a City. This play is dedicated to her.

Steph Prizhitomsky is the seventeen year old head screenwriter of FIF Productions, director of the horror miniseries Distress Signals, co-producer of the White Rabbit Film Festival, recipient of the best young actor award at the NJ film awards, and playwright and director of Vincent's at the Player's Theatre, Under the Limelight at the Rogue Theater Festival, and Limbo's Woodland at the Chain Theatre.

The poster of the show was edited by Daniel Oliver Lee.
