A seminal Scottish drama that hasn't been seen on an American stage in 30 years, the Griffin Theatre Company proudly presents Ena Lamont Stewart's Men Should Weep. A landmark work that was selected by the National Theatre of London's millennium poll as one of the "Top 100 Plays of the Century," this show is set in Glasgow during the 1930s depression. Focusing on the misfortunes of the Morrison family -- six children, two parents and one grandmother all living together in a disordered tenement home -- this family drama touches on many timeless issues, all stemming from the central theme of poverty. At times touching and lighthearted, at others bitter and cathartic, the quiet power of Men Should Weep will stay with you long after the curtain falls. Learn More

Incredibly smart and well done play. It kept my attention to the very end . The play covers many interesting issues among which are: religion, racism and power. I can highly recommend that to everyone who is currently searching for her or his own destiny.

The show was phenomenal. The cast was excellent and held my attention the entire time. The audience was pitifully small for such a great performance. Go see this show. It's intense and emotional and serious and humorous and worth every penny.
Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train centers on Angel, a young Latino man in jail for shooting a religious cult leader. Also in prison is an infamous, born-again serial killer who raises the question: Is faith enough to save those who have not practiced what they believe?
Guirgis’ plays are controversial and at times ferocious, but also stimulating and fiercely intelligent, inspiring audiences to question and debate long after they leave the theatre.
