“One of those rare must-sees...Bogosian’s themes cover escape and re-invention, the American dream...and the American nightmare.” — New York Post

First presented as part of Lincoln Center Theatre Company’s festival of New American Plays, subUrbia centers on a group of 20-somethings in a convenience store parking lot. Jeff, Buff and Tim—with personalities all their own—spend their days pondering life over drinks and Oreos. Tensions build amongst the group when semi–famous friend Pony shows up. Jealousy and anger come to a boiling point, resulting in absurd physical moments and sheer violence. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, NY. Contains adult language and situations.
