Summary

"Guirgis, like other storytellers who explore the sacred and profane, is most interested in how grace transforms us."—The New Yorker 
Written with humor, tenderness, grit, and wonderment by acclaimed playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis, Between Riverside and Crazy is an extraordinary new play: a dark comedy about a man trying to maintain control as the world unravels around him. 
City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the Landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed, and the Church won't leave him alone. As ex-cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington struggles to hold on to one of the last great rent-stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive, he must also contend with old wounds, new houseguests, and a final ultimatum. It seems the old days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living between Riverside and Crazy. 
Stephen Adly Guirgis' other plays include The Motherfucker with the Hat, Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train, Our Lady of 121st Street, In Arabia We'd All Be Kings, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, The Little Flower of East Orange, Den of Thieves, Race Religion Politics, and Dominica: The Fat Ugly Ho. His play Between Riverside and Crazy won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2015. He is a former co-artistic director of LABryinth Theater Company. He received the Yale Wyndham-Campbell Prize, a PEN/Laura Pels Award, a Whiting Award and a fellowship from TCG in 2004.
Available since: 10/19/2015.

    “This excellent and charming story describes a tree that endured numerous hardships to become not only a staple of Southern cuisine but an American treasure.” —Library Journal   What would Thanksgiving be without pecan pie? New Orleans without pecan pralines? But as familiar as the pecan is, most people don’t know the fascinating story of how native pecan trees fed Americans for thousands of years until the nut was “improved” a little more than a century ago—and why that rapid domestication actually threatens the pecan’s long-term future.   In The Pecan, the acclaimed author of Just Food and A Revolution in Eating explores the history of America’s most important commercial nut. He describes how essential the pecan was for Native Americans—by some calculations, an average pecan harvest had the food value of nearly 150,000 bison. McWilliams explains that, because of its natural edibility, abundance, and ease of harvesting, the pecan was left in its natural state longer than any other commercial fruit or nut crop in America. Yet once the process of “improvement” began, it took less than a century for the pecan to be almost totally domesticated. Today, more than 300 million pounds of pecans are produced every year in the United States—and as much as half of that total might be exported to China, which has fallen in love with America’s native nut. McWilliams also warns that, as ubiquitous as the pecan has become, it is vulnerable to a “perfect storm” of economic threats and ecological disasters that could wipe it out within a generation. This lively history suggests why the pecan deserves to be recognized as a true American heirloom.

    From the moment we are born we are controlled and manipulated by an alien hybrid race. We are fed poison and sold a cure. We are numbered, brainwashed, taxed and lied to. We are food for the masters and nothing more. 
     
    The lies we are sold are so powerful that we ourselves become preachers of deceit. No matter the technology, no matter the age of man, no matter the flag we hold dear to - we are pawns of the alien overlords. 
     
    For thousands of years mankind has been controlled by a powerful reptilian elite that came down to earth as watchers and gods. Every religion, mythology and folklore on planet earth has some element of their history. Their offspring are the powerful and rich families that have been linked to so many secret societies. 
     
    These creatures are malevolent by nature and ugly to our sight. They change shape, confuse and conspire. They created and control the secret societies, shadow governments and religions. Their power is over the control of our thoughts and actions. 
     
    Knowledge is power. Arm yourself now and discover the truth about the Alien Conspiracy.
