Wreckio Ensemble Presents ROOFTOPS For 4 Week Engagement
by BWW News Desk - Mar 5, 2009

WRECKIO ENSEMBLE is pleased to announce the world premiere production of ROOFTOPS, directed by Kimberlea Kressal. ROOFTOPS will play a four-week limited engagement at The Milagro at Clemente Soto V?lez Cultural Center (107 Suffolk Street, New York, NY 10002). Performances begin Thursday, March 5 and continue through to Saturday, March 28. Opening Night is Saturday, March 7 (8 p.m.). ROOFTOPS is a satiric commentary on the economic divide present in American society. When Crane is ripped from her world of comfort and convenience and catapulted on to ?the Tops?, she is introduced to a world of women living and working in a futuristic ?debtors prison?. These women, under constant sedation, unlivable conditions, and government experimentation, are quickly deteriorating both mentally and physically. As she learns the rituals and rules of her new home, including a regimented diet of fast food chicken and an expectation to breed with the rooftop's male watchdog, Crane's hope of ever returning to her old life seems impossible. When an Arab-American man, who is demonized by the media as a terrorist, offers Crane a chance to end the suffering of the rooftop dwellers, but possibly sacrifice herself in the process, Crane is forced to question the worth of one human life versus the freedom of thousands.
