    Winner, 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama"Completely compelling . . . Galvanizing but not importunate. You could cry (I did), but you are always free simply to laugh instead." Jesse Green,New YorkGuirgis, like other storytellers who explore the sacred and the profane, is most interested in how grace transforms us. His empathetic, poetic tales of ex-cons, addicts, and other men whom society would label losers return us, again and again, to a world that Guirgis, by virtue of his particular religionthe church of the streetsilluminates with the bright and crooked light of his faith.” Hilton Als, New Yorker"A nuanced, beautifully written play about a retired police officer faced with eviction that uses dark comedy to confront questions of life and death." - Pulitzer Prize CitationWritten 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 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's other plays include 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, andDominica: The Fat Ugly Ho. He is a former co-artistic director of LABryinth Theater Company.

    A masterful poet of the downtrodden, Guirgis portrays life on New York's hardscrabble streets in a manner both tender and unflinching, while continually exploring the often startling gulf between who we are and how we perceive ourselves. This volume includes his most recent work, Our Lady of 121st Street, an acclaimed comic portrait of the graduates of a Harlem Catholic school reunited at the funeral of a beloved teacher, along with his two previous plays: the philosophical jailhouse drama Jesus Hopped the A Train and In Arabia, We'd All Be Kings, an Iceman Cometh for the Giuliani era that looks at the effect of Times Square's gentrification on its less-desirable inhabitants.

    From one of our most admired playwrights, “an ambitious, complicated and often laugh-out-loud religious debate” (Toby Zinman, The Philadelphia Inquirer) Set in a time-bending, seriocomically imagined world between Heaven and Hell, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a philosophical meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will that takes a close look at the eternal damnation of the Bible's most notorious sinner. This latest work from the author of Our Lady of 121st Street “shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life's losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk. [Guirgis brings to the play] a stirring sense of Christian existential pain, which wonders at the paradoxes of faith” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times).
