Car dispatchers, sex workers, drag queens, E.R. doctors, gamblers and insomniacs collide in the colorful world of Jackson Heights 3AM, a new collaborative work by seven playwrights who explored the underbelly of the most culturally diverse neighborhood in the world—between the hours of 10 pm and 4 am.
“A sheer delight from beginning to end. This unusual work adroitly captures the frenetic energy of a neighborhood often called the crossroads of the world… Jackson Heights 3AM proves to be a quintessentially American story.” —TheatreMania review

The copier coughs. The air conditioner stutters. Your Post-It supply is running low. Don’t dismiss the notion that you may be reckoning with forces divine. In the world premiere production of We Play For The Gods, four women go to work on a seemingly ordinary day only to find that a trickster god has slid through the cracks and cubicles of their office to take them on a journey to the other side of ordinary. Who knows? Today, the same could happen to you.
“BrillIant new production… The finesse of so many fantastic artists armed with a common goal blows the house down, making for a work you should not miss.” —nytheatre.com review
