The Belief Project
In Residence at IRT Theater: March 24- April 6, 2014

The Belief Project is a theatrical explosion of the gun control debate, delving into the way beliefs drive violent action in a polarized American populace.  Drawing on the Newtown shootings, current events, psychological studies, religious texts, the Peter Pan myth and interviews, The Belief Project is a physio-musical theatrical collage that unflinchingly examines the paradigms that govern a world where some children will never grow up.

TIMES: 8pm
LENGTH OF SHOW:90 mins, no intermission
PRICE:$15 advanced purchase; $18 at the door

At IRT:154 Christopher st. NYC #3B (third floor)
