Between Riverside and Crazy

By Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Adriana Baer

March 4, 2018 – April 1, 2018

Alder Stage

Meet Walter “Pops” Washington, retired after 30 years from the NYPD after being shot by a white, rookie cop. Holding court from his recently deceased wife’s wheelchair over a motley crew of housemates, he righteously, tenaciously, holds out for a police department settlement until an ecstatic experience shakes him from inaction.  For once, “Pops” will make it go how he wants it to go while everyone else hustles to get what they think they deserve. A well-lived life can’t only be eating Ring Dings, drinking whiskey all day and living in a ramshackle palace on Riverside Drive, now can it?
