At the bombed-out corner of a country that feels both foreign and familiar, three orphaned, stateless youth have built a simple life out of recreation and mischief-making. Their way of life is rocked as a parade of immodest strangers slowly invade their homestead offering gifts of knowledge, medicine, art and commerce. As long-held values are upended, and the lure of escape blurs their beliefs, life and landscape mutate into a grotesquery of charity exploitation that threaten their relationships and humanity.   

In a comic spectacle that challenges the pretense of altruism and civilization, Frontiéres sans Frontières asks what happens when generosity looks a lot like self-interest? How to make sense of things when the promise of language matures to the warring of words? What if development equals death?

This world-premiere marks the New York playwriting debut for Phillip Howze,
a recent graduate of Yale School of Drama. The play is helmed by Dustin Wills, the imaginative director of The Foundry’s O, Earth, and the Page 73/Rattlestick Playwrights production of Orange Julius.
