Recipient of the NEA's 2009 Distinguished New Play Development Project

A National New Play Network (NNPN) Rolling World Premier: Borderlands Theater, Mixed Blood Theater (Minneapolis), and Long Warf Theater (New Haven)

Five vibrant souls redefine themselves in their new world against the

subterranean rhythms of a subway train. Funny and powerful, this new play

explores the intersecting lives of Agnes, a Liberian homecare worker, a

Bulgarian ringmaster and his wife, an Indian call center escapee, and an

itinerant, transit busker. Borderlands' production of Agnes Under the Big Top

is part of a NNPN Rolling World Premier that includes productions at

Mixed Blood Theater and Long Warf Theater.
