Troy Foundry Theatre has commissioned Die-Cast of Philadelphia for the co-creation of a new site-specific immersive performance piece, unfolding the underground subculture of alcohol and speakeasies in Troy, NY during Prohibition. The company will take residency at Collar Works in Troy for the development and performance of the new work, “The Prohibition Project.”
In a country divided, there is a battle being waged over who gets to be called an American. Workers are striking, immigrants are coming and the Democratic Party has too many candidates for the upcoming convention. It is the end of the Roaring 1920s and everyone knows the world is about to change. But whose change will win out?
We are joined by Troy Foundry Theatre Executive Director David Girard, Producing Executive Directory Emily Curro, co-founder of Die-Cast theatre in Philadelphia, Director and co-creator of The Prohibition Project Brenna Geffers, and company member of Die-Cast and cast member of The Prohibition Project, Ross Beschler.
