Kid Brooklyn Productions
KB Lab Series The Emilies
September 18- October 1, 2018
Recovering addict and aspiring pop star Avery comes home to his sister Emily’s bedside following her horrific attempt at suicide. Over the course of a night he’ll fight to solve the puzzle of who his brilliant and wild-hearted sister really is – or was – and how she ended up confined to a hospital bed, connected to a ventilator. The Emilies is a story about addiction, and about recovery. Each comes with its own set of consequences. For Avery and Emily, there may be healing but there is also, inevitably, irreparable harm.

At IRT:154 Christopher st. NYC #3B (third floor)
A public staged workshop of The Emilies

IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village, IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, New York State Council on the Arts, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
PLEASE NOTE: All sales final and there is no late seating at IRT Theater.
