BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY, won the 2015 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, the 2015 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, the 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play, the 2015 Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Play and the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Set in New York City, it boldly examines, with delightful wit, the effects of social prejudice and continues to be extremely relevant in an unsteady society. Pushing to hang on to one of Manhattan’s last rent-stabilized apartments, ex-cop Walter “Pops” Washington conflicts with a slew of bizarre characters, each a celebration of the flaws that make up human nature.
