"#1 Show to see This week" ~ NY Theatre Guide 

 

"One of the top 6 shows to see with a limited run" ~ Playbill

"One of the 6 pieces of political theatre to see after the election" ~Broadwaybox.com

"Best Bet" ~ Theasy.com

 

 

"This heartfelt new play is–for the most part–an empathetic window into the lives of a troubled few. Behind Zeiger’s tight script and a handful of admirable performances, Roughly Speaking is an honest representation and dissection of the homeless culture in New York City." ~ TheaterScene.net

A new play with rap

by

Shara Ashley Zeiger

See a world we often walk by through the eyes of Lightning.Bolt, a rapper bound only by his wheelchair on a not so typical day at the soup kitchen. An existential struggle of survival begs questions of love, loss, and what's next.
