Rogues Theatre presents A Beautiful New City by George F. Walker
In Beautiful City, two families fight for possession of property, assets and each other in this satire on the decay of urban life and morals.
Beautiful City is the story of each persons quest to get what he or she wants, by overcoming the simple ugly truth. Tony wants a grandiose shopping mall. His mobster mama wants more money. His architect wants to be healed. The witch wants urban renewal and the freedom to dig through garbage. Beautiful City interconnects three families in an urban fairy tale of betrayal, greed and redemption.
From his offer of tenuous hope to the denizens of a city salvaged from the powerful and the greedy in Beautiful City
Walker continues his explorations of characters living in extremity in the arena of a political comedy uniquely his own.
Walker writes with unprecedented directness[His] characters think and feel out loud in a perpetual present-tense fever because life, and often more, is on the line. Village Voice
