The Model American

In 2017, what does it take for an immigrant to achieve the American Dream? With humor and humanity, playwright Jason Kim (HBO's "Girls") explores this question in his timely world premiere play directed by Danny Sharron. Young, Latino, gay and unapologetically ambitious, Gabriel arrives in New York seeking work, friendship, love and mentorship. But, before he can move forward, he must honestly determine if he is running toward success or away from what he left behind. Developed at WTF under the auspices of the Bill Foeller Fellowship Program in 2016, The Model American asks: what is the price we are willing to pay for a new life?
