Escape Premiered at La MaMa, June 7, 2012
Lying in wait with a shotgun, Gus, an unemployed elevator repairman, keeps his neighbors and his wife in the crosshairs. Next door lives an actress—a Marilyn Monroe look-alike—held captive by Daddy, a universal terrorist on the run. And in the next apartment, the grandson of Harry Houdini struggles to free himself from his own chains. Release is on everyone’s mind, but can anyone ever escape?
Escape was developed at New Dramatists with the support from the Creativity Fund 2009, 2012.A grant was awarded to support the creation of Escape from New York Foundation for the Arts Artists’ Fund.
