Theater: Hoi Polloi

May 21, 2013

How do Americans come together - and fall apart? That question fuels the works produced by Hoi Polloi, an Obie-winning New York-based theater collaborative. Foudner and artistic director Alec Duffy '98 (left, pictured with Ritza Calixte '13) brought the group to Duke in February for a two-week residency using Plato's Republic as a starting point for exploring the Occupy Wall Street movement. This spring the group presents a stage adaptation of John Cassavetes' film Shadows at Jack Theater in Brooklyn.
