A new musical created and conceived by Elizabeth A. Davis
Directed by Don Scardino
A Choctaw, homeless man looking for a fight. A Caucasian girl looking for a cause. An African American man who sees them both for who they are. INDIAN JOE, a new, American musical based on true events, is this unlikely love triangle that takes us from the streets of Waco, TX to the streets of New York City. It asks the question ‘Where is home?’ or more acutely, ‘Who is home?’ and how high is the price to find that answer. The Progressive Folk sound of INDIAN JOE weaves acoustic instrumentation with strains of industrial pop along this journey of overcoming prejudice and fear to find family.
New York Stage and Film is delighted to partner with Barnard to present this reading series of new plays in development. The series is intended to give the emerging and established playwrights selected by NYSAF an opportunity to hear their work aloud, with the participation of professional actors and directors.
