Next Door at NYTW provides a home for companies and artists who are producing their own work. This initiative provides each project with subsidized resources and space for development and performance in the Fourth Street Theatre. As part of an ongoing effort to expand support for artists at every stage of their careers, this series served over 300 artists in the first two years alone.
The 2017-2018 NHL season was an embarrassment for the New York Islanders. Displaced from their home rink and in danger of losing their captain, they never made it to the playoffs.
In ISLANDER, Playwright Liza Birkenmeier and director Katie Brook repurpose commentary from this abysmal season, to explore the crisis of the team as the crisis of white male American identity.
ISLANDER was developed though a New Georges Audrey Residency.
