Paris

By Eboni Booth
Directed by Knud Adams

Atlantic Stage 2

January 8 – February 16, 2020


Paris is the Off-Broadway playwriting debut of acclaimed actor Eboni Booth (Dance Nation), directed by Knud Adams (Marie and Bruce).

More Info

Emmie is one of the only black people living in Paris, Vermont, and she desperately needs a job. When she is hired at Berry’s, a store off the interstate selling everything from baby carrots to lawnmowers, she begins to understand a new kind of isolation. A play about invisibility, being underpaid, and how it feels to work on your feet for ten hours a day.

Running Time: Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

Paris is a recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.

Following her Drama Desk Award-winning performance in Dance Nation, comes the Off-Broadway playwriting debut of actor/writer Eboni Booth!

Reviews

“Racism is a stealth force in Eboni Booth’s astute & coolly observant new play. A solid addition to the genre of sociologically detailed working-class American dramas. Simple yet startling & directed with a very even hand by Knud Adams.”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

 

★★★★
“A remarkable new play! Part workplace comedy, part social thriller. Booth’s deft & delicate hand cuts with slow deliberation until it reaches the bone.”

Naveen Kumar, Time Out New York

 

“A fierce distillation of life under modern precarity. The chill of this show went so deep. The cast is perfect from stem to stern, all of them hilarious & dangerous.”

Helen Saw, New York Magazine

“A lean & impressive debut with an outstanding cast! Each character is both sharply written & played. Paris will transport you to a place that comes to feel as intimate & epic as the city with which it shares its name.”

Tim Teeman, The Daily Beast

 

“An excellent production.”

Michael Sommers, New York Stage Review

 

★★★★

Stanford Friedman, New York Theatre Guide

 

“Beguiling!”
