Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival,

Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
A pick-up line ("Are you from Staten Island?") turns metaphysical as a woman from Iowa tries to explain how the world works to an insulated Staten Island native. As she speaks, she reveals her prejudices while he, though limited in perception and worldliness, displays the ability to accept what he sees and meet others on equal footing. The Ferry was commissioned by a benefit for families of busboys, dishwashers, and other non-salaried restaurant workers in the World Trade Center. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 28th Series.
The Ferry was written for and originally produced by Melissa Rayworth in October 2001 as part of Big City, Short Plays - A Benefit Evening for Windows on Hope. The play was subsequently performed at the Vital Theatre Company in New York City in May 2002. It was directed by Karen Sommers.
