Theater for the New City will present a lineup of wide-ranging and original theatrical visions embracing drama, poetry, music, and dance in the summer of 2014 from performing artists representing theater and performance companies in our theater complex in downtown New York.

Devil Lay Me Down is written by Ean Miles Kessler and directed by David Delaney. World premiere. Julian Carthy returns from prison to his father's trailer on the Texas-Mexico border, hell-bent on carving a fresh life and finding his daughter. There he finds his father, Marcus, living with Ro, his much younger live-in girlfriend. When a spark of interest lights between Julian and Ro, old tensions seethe between father and son, drawing Julian's brutal past to the surface. A modern Western at its heart, "Devil Lay Me Down" is a brutal love story and love song to the American West.
