Performed in Central Park's East Meadow, Back and Forth is the story of two long-time friends, Marty and Drew, meeting up for their first in-person game of catch since the pandemic. While Marty is ready to rekindle the friendship they had when they first came to New York, Drew has a secret he's dreading sharing. Audience members receive pocket radios in order to eavesdrop on Marty and Drew from 100 feet away.

Back and Forth is an intimate story of two old friends reuniting for the first time since a forced period of extended social isolation (yes, that period of social isolation) and discovering that despite having felt basically immobile for the past 18 months, quite a lot has changed. Experienced amongst everyday park-goers, the audience will experience the play via headphones to observe and eavesdrop at their leisure.
Show Notes

Show Notes: Audience members will receive an email 24 hours before their performance telling them where to enter the park and how to recognize the house manager, who will advise them on how to tune in to the show and where they may want to sit, though ultimately the audience will decide how they want to observe this particular game of catch.
