In The Jungle of Cities
SMPL MCHN, a experimental theater company, will present the world premiere play, IN THE JUNGLE OF CITIES, by BERTOLT BRECHT, as adapted and directed by ISAAC BUSH, at the immersive and site specific location of M. Fine Lumber (200 Morgan Ave.) in Williamsburg-Brooklyn, October 10 - 20, 2019.

IN THE JUNGLE OF CITIES, depicts the story of George, a poetic book clerk, who, when faced with a shifty lumber dealer, named Shlink, must defend his territory and family honor. Fraud, crime and prostitution play out in this immersive new adaptation. The story is that of a boxing match between two men who know nothing of life other than its trials and tribulations.

In an ambitious new production using Brechts 20th-century German and modernist template, playwright and director Isaac Bush delves into current American identity: struggles with race, gender roles, and socio/economic injustice.

"As New Yorkers, In the Jungle of Cities is a title that reflects our urban environment. A frenzy of rhythms and a whirlwind of identity shifting beyond our control. As a Caucasian-American, cis-gender male creating theater, I feel it is my obligation to self reflect on our shared cultural fabric and explore the voices crying out for immediate need in the communities which surround us. We live in chaotic and unforgiving places, however it is a landscape ready for amazing moments of change."  - Isaac Bush, director.

The cast includes: Teisha Duncan, Kelsey Godfrey, Melle Phillips, Gregory Warren, Burgandy Williams, and Dennis Wit.

Written by Bertolt Brecht
Adapted & Directed by Isaac Bush

SMPL MCHN is a production company for the arts, focusing on established and new works, meant to reach the hearts of our audiences. Our message is rooted first in our topics of focus, as then the staging of our work: we do not operate in any formalized convention. We are young and alive, we are fierce and talented, we are innovative and experimental, we are philosophers. We speak to our people in a proximity to dismantle the walls that other ourselves from each other by race, gender, economics, and social hierarchy. The work of SMPL MCHN, is unlike anything else: we are storytellers emboldened to make social change in our world.
