Unit Set/Multiple Settings

IN THE FOOTPRINT tells the story of Brooklyn's largest development project in history. The play examines the conflicts that erupted in the case of Atlantic Yards through to their current resolution in an attempt to discover how the fate of the city is decided in present-day New York and what can be learned from this ongoing saga of politics, money, and the places we call home. The play is constructed from interviews with real-life players in this Brooklyn epic, including local residents, business owners, opposition leader Daniel Goldstein, political leaders such as Letitia James and Marty Markowitz, activists, union members, and community leaders.
