Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! This dark urban comedy from Stephen Adly
Guirgis explores, with both disarming tenderness and street-smart wit, the slippery nature
of justice, and the grit it takes to move on. In an effort to hang on to one of Manhattan’s
last great rent-stabilized apartments, ex-cop Walter “Pops” Washington does battle with a
dazzling array of outlandish characters, each one a celebration of the glorious contradictions
that make up human nature.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling memoir, this groundbreaking musical introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories that celebrate the curiosity of childhood and the complexities of family.read more
