LEFTOVERS

A World Premiere by Josh Wilder
Directed by Summer L. Williams
In Development With Company One’s PlayLab

July 14 – August 12, 2017

Stay Tuned for Location

Weeds are a given in the heart of South Philly, but when a giant dandelion sprouts overnight and wishes start falling from the sky, one family begins to see a way out of the cycle of poverty that has governed their lives. For brothers Jalil and Kwamaine, hope is running thin as they wait for the arrival of their absent father—and in time, discover the power of their own dreams and the transformative influence of forgiveness. Seizing the possibility of no longer feeling like the city's leftovers, the two brothers find themselves on an adventure they never could have dreamed of.

C1's Take

This year, we are excited to debut a refined program structure for PlayLab — C1’s multi-tiered new play development program that has served over 26 playwrights over the past 5 years — that will provide even more opportunities for writers at all stages of their careers. That work includes the year-long developmental workshop of LEFTOVERS, culminating in our World Premiere production in July 2017.
