The world premiere of Seth Zvi Rosenfeld’s Downtown Race Riot opened December 3 in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. The Off-Broadway staging from The New Group is helmed by Artistic Director Scott Elliott and features a cast led by Chloë Sevigny.

Flip through photos of the opening night below:

Downtown Race Riot recalls a summer day in New York City in 1976 when a mob of young men descended on Washington Square Park and attacked people of color. In a cramped apartment in the Village, as the riot rages, a single mother (Sevigny), her son, and his best friend wrestle to find their place in the conflict.
