The limited run from June 13 through June 23, 2019, plays at the Playhouse home at 220 E 4th Street. Alberto Bonilla directs.

A community college student, focused on survival after a bid in prison, finds an unlikely bond with his mathematics professor.
IRIOMOTE by Arlene Jaffe
An eco-tour guide faces off against an arrogant resort developer determined to turn the natural paradise of Iriomote Island into a capitalist utopia not unlike the East Village.
THE POOR DOOR by Leonard Goodisman Two women meet in an entrance hall, each insulted that the other is there, and find they have more in common than they expected.
RAY'S CANDY STORE by Rachael Carnes An aspiring actress, finding life in the city more difficult than she expected, meets a bona fide New Yoker: owner of the (truly) famous Ray's Candy Store who offers her a new perspective, and an egg cream.
