BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY – comedy-drama by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama


Ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his newly paroled son have spent a lifetime living between Riverside and crazy. But now, the NYPD is demanding he close an outstanding lawsuit, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed—and the church won’t leave him alone. When the struggle to keep one of New York City’s last great rent-stabilized apartments collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems that the old days may be dead and gone.  “…somewhere south of cozy and north of dangerous, west of sitcom and due east of tragedy…a dizzying and exciting place to be…Riverside traffics in paradoxes, which is to say it deals with the walking contradictions that are human beings…” —NY Times. “…wonderful…a genuine original, one that deserves to be seen by anyone hungry for a smart, exuberantly funny urban dramedy
