About this show

With his signature blend of childlike curiosity, adult skepticism, and theatrical imagination, raconteur and NYTW Usual Suspect Thaddeus Phillips (Red Eye to Havre de Grace) returns to the Workshop. 17 Border Crossings begins with a man at a desk on an empty stage and ends up everywhere but, taking audiences on a trip around the world via Phillips's effortlessly fluent storytelling. A chair, table, and bar of lights become the imagined settings for invasive body searches at Charles de Gaulle, ayahuasca experiments in the Amazon, KFC-smuggling in Palestine, and run-ins with Ace of Base on Croatian ferries in this engrossing look at the imaginary lines that divide up the world and the very real barriers they create.
