Working Theater presents the Off-Broadway world premiere of Bamboo in Bushwick.
Working Theater describes the play in this way:
"Bushwick was called home by locals long before any magazine called it hip. Bamboo in Bushwick explores gentrification in this suddenly trendy neighborhood from divergent angles.
As a group of old friends gather for a round of dominoes, outside forces converge on their street corner. In an alternate reality, inspired by the psychedelic murals that have taken over many walls in the neighborhood, a turf war breaks out on the icy tundra. Is there room in Brooklyn for both penguins and polar bears?
When your community is threatened, every block is worth fighting for.
Bamboo in Bushwick is part of Working Theater's Five Boroughs/One City Initiative. The play was developed in partnership with Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council (RBSCC), and through conversations with their members and members of Bushwick Salvation Army Community Center, El Puente Bushwick, Make the Road New York and the general Bushwick community."
Bamboo in Bushwick was presented on April 13th and 14th at the Ridgewood Bushwick Youth Center.
Applications were accepted through March 8, 2017 for 63 newly constructed units at OUR LADY OF LOURDES APARTMENTS (1875 Broadway, 11 De Sales Place and 21 De Sales Place, Bushwick, Brooklyn).
The building renovation is being done through a partnership between RBSCC and Georgica Green Ventures, LLC.
