East Side Stories: Game Changers
They Come and Come by John J. Kelly - On the 1920s Lower East Side, Irish and German immigrants find the community born of hardship when an engineer, trapped working in the coal plants of Con Edison, tries to find his just-arrived wife in the bustling city.
Chess With Edison by David Vazdauskas - An ironic comedy of change and history: it is 1898, and the Stuyvesant Chess Club awaits a very prestigious visitor, but Susan B. Anthony's suffragettes rattle the very gates of an old boys' invention.
Alive and Well by Mercedes Segesvary - A biracial couple find their downtown apartment robbed, with only a note from the thief and a "helpful" neighbor left behind. Where does compassion stop and judgment start?
Every Pair of Blue Jeans Was Like a Bullet by J. Paul Porter - Spiritual East Village residents Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Josef Stalin find themselves newly incarnated as stockbrokers in downtown New York; a comedy about capitalism and communism (just the funny parts) and the irony of history.
