"City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the Landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won't leave him alone," press notes state. "For ex-cop & recent widower Walter 'Pops' Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, when the struggle to hold on to one of the last, great rent-stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems the Old Days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living between Riverside and Crazy."

Guirgis' works include Our Lady of 121st Street, Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, The Little Flower of East Orange and The Motherf***er with the Hat.

The production features scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design by Keith Parham and original music and sound design by Ryan Rumery.

The Linda Gross Theater is located at 336 West 20th St. Visit for more information.
