Queens Row

Richard Maxwell New York City Players
March 3 – 6, 2022
Italian Premiere
In the aftermath of an American civil war, three women – a mother, a lover and a daughter – walk into a naked room and stand on a pedestal to narrate, one by one, what’s left of their lives after they have been shattered by discrimination, violence, poverty and loss. As we listen to the three monologues, we begin to understand how these women are connected and how their new tomorrow requires a re-evaluation of their perspectives on faith and survival. Resisting sentimental clichés of sympathy and consolation, in Queens Row American director Richard Maxwell masterfully envisions a future which confirms many of the darkest fears of today while allowing a ray of hope to slice through the darkness.
Richard Maxwell is a playwright, director, and the artistic director of New York City Players. He studied acting at Illinois State University and then became co-founder of the Cook County Theater Department in Chicago. He was the recipient of the 2014 Spalding Gray Award. He was a Doris Duke Performing Artist and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, two Obie Awards, a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant, and was an invited artist in the Whitney Biennial in 2012. In Europe his work has been commissioned by ICA London, Festival D’Automne, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Wiener Festwochen, and presented in the Venice Biennale. In the fall of 2019 Maxwell made a project in collaboration with refugees in France at Théatre de la Commune in Aubervilliers.
