Full Length Play

In the summer of 2001 in New York City, two young men from the same apartment building find their lives intersecting, as each struggles to make sense of a changing world.
"An ideal rebuttal to a mostly dismal season of new plays on Broadway has arrived, with impeccable timing, at Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre. It's Christopher Shinn's WHERE DO WE LIVE, an exceptionally fine new play that probes with clarity and compassion the lives of a handful of New Yorkers just before, and just after, the events of Sept. 11, 2001…Shinn captures, as no playwright yet has, the strange, terrible continuity of those days in New York—how, for most people, little really changed, even as we were being told that everything had." —Variety (Isherwood). "A deeply haunting play by Christopher Shinn about a city struggling against darkness. It's not simply because its events occur either side of 9/11 that this play hits us where we live now. More disturbing is one's awareness as the play unfolds that all its talk of doing good can't preempt a fractiousness and dissonance that are part of New York's inherent beat…One can only marvel at Shinn's ability." —Variety (Wolf). "An honest, insightful, and necessary play." —Associated Press. "An impressive new play. A startlingly accurate theatrical appraisal of the way we live now." —Village Voice.
