America the Brunchiful

EST/Youngblood’s first brunch of 2012/2013 in association with The 52nd Street Project.

The 52nd Street Project works with neighborhood kids on original theater pieces.  For our third collaboration with the Project, five Youngblood playwrights created plays custom-written for one of the teens from the Project to perform in, surrounded by professional actors. Presenting FIVE brand new plays, plus a brunch buffet of pancakes, eggs, bacon, pastries and fruit!

It’s election week.  The plays are about America.
