PASSAGE @ Soho Rep until May 26
Country X is occupied/colonized by Country Y. Then an incident involving the accusation of assault in a remote cave from a Country Y-er to a Country X-er explodes the simmering social tensions between the citizenry. Inspired by E. M. Forster’s A Passage to India, Christopher Chen explores the nature of humanity and social prejudices.

BOUND @ Theater For The New City until May 12
“Weaving through time from the 1850s to now, the intersection of sacred, ancestral land and tribal sovereignty as innate rights are explored in Bound, but do these rights end where the boundary of Mexico begins? The threats of building a wall and oil tycoons building pipelines through Native lands do not intimidate Marigold Page as she is determined that history will not repeat itself.” -from official website.
