About This Show

Arch Productions presents Riff Raff, written by Laurence Fishburne. It’s Halloween night. Mike (“20/20”) Leon and his half-brother, Billy (“Torch”) Williams, have retreated to an abandoned apartment on the Lower East Side in the aftermath of a con game gone sour. Torch has just killed one of the henchmen of the neighborhood’s reigning crime lord. Having planned no means of escape, Mike summons his former running partner, Tony (“The Tiger”) Lee, to help him out of this jam. What follows is a continuing three-way confrontation in which guns are drawn, allegiances shifted and secrets revealed. The New York Times called Mr. Fishburne’s play “Surprisingly and effectively understated, with scalding bubbles of anxiety breaking through a surface of a numbed calm.”

The Producers of Riff Raff are pleased to support the
Shakespeare N. Haarlem Theater Festival.
