This Is Not A Theatre Company's Subway Plays is a trilogy of site-specific, sensory podplays for the New York City Subway. Armed with nothing more than a set of headphones and an app, spectators ride the subway while listening to the recorded production - every surrounding sight, smell, and sound plays a supporting role in the experience.
"And as the ferry moves across New York Harbor, the vistas on that world change, giving the play a sense of vastness that contrasts with the intimacy of in-your-ear drama."
