Performances begin May 30 at Ars Nova's Greenwich House for the company's return run of Underground Railroad Game. Since debuting with Ars Nova in 2016, the Obie-winning show has toured eight cities on three continents and played over 200 performances, garnering widespread critical acclaim.

The strictly limited engagement, helmed by original director Taibi Magar, runs through June 15 with an opening night set for June 1. Creators Jennifer Kidwell and Scott R. Sheppard reprise their performances.

Underground Railroad Game is created by Kidwell and Sheppard with Philadelphia-based theatre company Lightning Rod Special. The show welcomes audiences to Hanover Middle School, where a pair of teachers—Kidwell and Sheppard—take on our nation's history, tackling race, sex, and power.

The creative team for Underground Railroad Game includes Tilly Grimes (production design), Steven Dufala (scenic design), Oona Curley (lighting design), Mikaal Sulaiman (sound design), Ryan Borque (fight choreography), David Neumann (movement consultant), Lisa McGinn (production stage manager), and Natalie Hratko (assistant stage manager).

Tickets can be purchased by visiting ArsNovaNYC.com or by calling (212) 352-3101.
