"Backyard/Desert" by Nancy Irene Kelly


  • TADA! YOUTH THEATER 15 W 28th St New York, NY (map)

The Theater Collective (TTC) is proud to present its first fully staged production of Backyard/Desert by Nancy Irene Kelly. Backyard/Desert recently debuted as part of the Irvington Town Hall Theater Play Reading Festival in November 2017 in addition to opening our first season (Spring 2018) as a staged reading.

A play for our times, Backyard/Desert explores the human ties that transcend all borders. When a female border patrol agent finds a young migrant lost in the desert, the aftershocks of the encounter slowly erode the foundations upon which she’s built her life, leading her to question her choices and relationships. In the end, she must make a wrenching decision in order to follow her truth.
