What to Watch For

  • the bandaged place won the 2018 Relentless Award, a prize from The American Playwriting Foundation established in honor of the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. It recognizes new works that "are challenging, exhibit fearlessness, exude passion, and are relentlessly truthful."
  • Director David Mendizábal is an award winner themselves. They are a producing artistic leader of Movement Theatre Company, an Off-Broadway organization that has won the Obie Award. Since the main character of the bandaged place is a dancer, we can expect plenty of movement throughout the show.
  • Rivers has written plays as well as the books for musicals. His plays include This Bitter Earth, Where Storms Are Born, and When Last We Flew, and his musicals include Five Points, We Shall Someday, and I Put a Spell on You.
  • TV fans may already be familiar with Rivers's work — he's written for shows including Peacock's One of Us is Lying, HBO's The Nevers, and Hulu's The Plot.
  • Keep an eye out for more of Rivers at Roundabout! As part of the Underground program, he will be commissioned to write another play to be produced with the theatre company.
