Join us for a groundbreaking new show that presents acclaimed actors performing live dramatic readings of long-form journalism for curated studio audiences at The Greene Space and global audiences on Zoom as a catalyst for authentic, community-driven dialogue about some of the most pressing issues of our time.
The program will feature an article from the May 22, 2023 issue of The New Yorker entitled “The System That Failed Jordan Neely“ by Adam Iscoe to frame a powerful, guided conversation about New York City’s revolving-door approach to mental health and homelessness.
The event will begin with a dramatic reading of the article and culminate in a powerful audience discussion, grounded by the immediate responses of community members whose lives have been touched by the issues at the center of the story, including paramedics, psychiatric nurses, case workers, law enforcement, transit workers, the unhoused, those who serve them, and concerned citizens.
Featuring performances by Jesse Eisenberg (Fleishman is in Trouble, Zombieland, The Social Network), Daphne Rubin-Vega (In the Heights, Rent, Sex and the City), Chad Coleman (The Wire, The Walking Dead, The Orville) and David Strathairn (Nomadland, The Bourne Ultimatum, Good Night, and Good Luck.).
Co-presented by Theater of War Productions and The Greene Space, with special thanks to The New Yorker for granting their permission.
