North of the Boulevard (Reading)
By Bruce Graham
From Exile's favorite playwright, author of Any Given Monday and The Philly Fan, comes a darkly funny story about shifting morals and changing neighborhoods. Be the first to see the newest story from Bruce Graham in a one-night-only reading with an all star cast.
North of the Boulevard introduces you to four lifelong friends from the wrong side of the tracks. Now grown men, Tweet, Bear, Zee and Larry meet each day in a run-down garage and watch their neighborhood crumble into political corruption and crime. Despite the promises of President Obama, the changes have not all been good. Robbed of their choices by corporations and modern expectations, they feel helpless as they face the future. But when a chance tragedy gives the friends the opportunity to get out of their crumbling neighborhood, morality may have to take a backseat to prosperity. Using sharp humor and fearless honesty North of the Boulevard paints an excruciatingly candid picture of class politics, gentrification and survival in the modern urban city
Starring Scott Greer, Brian Anthony Wilson, Brian McCann and Harry Philibosian
