Between Riverside And Crazy

Between Riverside And Crazy
by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Directed by Judith Moreland

August 28 – September 29, 2019
2015 Pulitzer Prize Winner 
Sacramento Premiere

Ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his newly paroled son Junior have spent a lifetime living between Riverside Drive and crazy. But now, the NYPD is demanding his signature to close an outstanding lawsuit, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed—and the church won’t leave him alone. When the struggle to keep one of New York City’s last great rent-stabilized apartments collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems that the old days may be dead and gone.
