The Low Road - at the Public Theater


Trevor New- Violinist/Viola, Woodwinds, and Percussion

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring seventeen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we’ve built our economy and our country.

Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America’s first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another’s loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. 

Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.
