6 Hit Plays from New York's Downtown Theaters

Edited by Morgan Gould and Erin Salvi


Dive into the world of the strange, the unexpected, and the uncanny with this collection of six new plays from New York's downtown theaters. From a dark, unsettling fable about the aftermath of war (Phoebe in Winter) to an absurdist exploration of humanity via a former showbiz ape (Trevor), this anthology offers a rich selection of works from some of our most daring and innovative contemporary playwrights. A must-read collection for anyone looking to keep a finger on the pulse of the most exhilarating theater New York has to offer.

  • A Map of Virtue by Erin Courtney
  • We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury
  • Trevor by Nick Jones
  • The Lily's Revenge by Taylor Mac
  • Alice in Slasherland by Qui Nguyen
  • Phoebe in Winter by Jen Silverman

Trevor: “Hugely entertaining tragicomedy... the genius of [Jones’s] play is how he has so cleverly humanized both characters.” – Chicago Sun Times

The Lily’s Revenge: “…offers so many incidental pleasures that theatrical time – always a curiously malleable element – seems to contract.” – New York Times

A Map of Virtue: “With a Hitchcockian sensibility, [Courtney] makes psychodrama out of the mystery of what keeps people together even as imaginations and egos push them apart. Like a souvenir from a fleeting dream, this play will pass over you painlessly, and then it will linger.” – Backstage
