The world premiere of Eboni Booth’s new play Paris at Atlantic Theater Company will begin performances January 8, 2020. The production, marking Booth’s Off-Broadway playwriting debut, is set to open at Atlantic’s Stage 2 January 21.
The production stars Jules Latimer (Off-Broadway Debut), Ann McDonough (The Ferryman), Bruce McKenzie (10 out of 12), James Murtaugh (Ah, Wilderness!), Eddie K. Robinson (Awake), Danielle Skraastad (Hurricane Diane) and Christopher Dylan White (The Bridge Play).
The play follows Emmie (Latimer), who lives in Paris, Vermont. After landing a job she desperately needs at a general store, Emmie—one of the only black people in town—is made to deal with a new kind of isolation.
