Jo, a young CEO, owns a green energy megacompany that is now one piece of legislation away from drastically transforming the American way of life for environmentalist good. Jo’s mother Sandy, however, mistrustful of her increasingly influential daughter, wages subtle war against Jo to keep what she sees as a dangerous amount of power out of her hands.

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, New York State Council on the Arts, Office of Council Member Corey Johnson and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
