WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

New York Theatre Workshop presents Liberty City, written by Jessica Blank and April Yvette Thompson, performed by Thompson, and directed by Blank. Liberty City: a place where people of the African Diaspora have settled; where urban and island cultures rub up against each other, and the site of Miami's infamous 1980 riots. Enter April Yvette Thompson -- a child of children of the 60's, the daughter of a Bahamian and Cuban father and an African American mother: free thinkers, movement people, and sometimes just plain poor. As the hope of the 60's and 70's gave way to the disintegration of the 80's, April's family struggled to survive and stay together. Part history, part imagination, Liberty City is her personal story that illuminates the lives of one family through the context of social, cultural, and political events.
