Three playwrights. Three plays. One remarkable experience. Presented by The Pool Plays in association with The New Group, The Pool Plays 3.0 span space and time, taking audiences from Brooklyn to Delhi to Berlin; from 1850 to the 1940s to 2023 as three diverse playwrights bring their vastly different perspectives into one collective dramatic space. Running throughout the plays are bright, common threads about the shifting nature of identity and about how the past echoes through the present and the future, demanding to be heard. Plays run in repertory. 

Antiquated F*ckery
By Jessica Charles
Directed by Cristina Angeles
Two Black, queer artists try to make it in an industry that considers them at once too Black and not Black enough.

The Berlin Diaries
By Andrea Stolowitz 
Directed by Will Steinberger
A complex drama about the search for home, fragmented heritage and Jewish diaspora.

Two Brown Porters 
By Naren Weiss 
Directed by Rajesh Bose
In this dark comedy, one choice sets momentous events into motion and two humble porters hold the key.
