bonnie’s last flight is a new georges supported production!

We are absolutely thrilled to support BONNIE’S LAST FLIGHT by Eliza Bent, directed by Annie Tippe — who developed the piece together as 2016-17 New Georges Audrey residents! — through our Supported Productions program, in which New Georges provides mentorship, resources and an institutional platform to affiliated artists who are producing their work independently.

BONNIE’S LAST FLIGHT runs February 8 through March 2 at NYTW Next Door!  Read all about it, then head on down and buckle your seatbelt, it’s a delightful travel experience and we can’t wait.

BONNIE’S LAST FLIGHT is a three-part play set on a plane. Our audience makes the trip as passengers: sitting on the tarmac before takeoff, floating at cruising altitude, and buckling down for the wild and rocky descent back to land.  In a comedy set on everyone’s least favorite mode of transit, we must reckon with our crew’s dreams and regrets and ask ourselves: What does it take to really start living?

Featuring Ceci Fernandez, Federico Rodriguez, Greig Sargeant, Barbara Walsh, Sam Breslin Wright and a special appearance by Eliza Bent as Mark Twain
