From the introduction, by Patina Miller

One theater's subjects this season included alcohol addiction, racism, the brutalization of women, homelessness brought on by mortgage foreclosures. Sounds like today’s news. But the special mission of this East Village company is to find the plays from America’s past that have most meaning in the present. And in between their past rediscoveries, they put on festivals of new works that explore East Village life today. For helping us see, theatrically, where we’ve been and where we are, the judges have voted an Obie grant and a check for $2500 to METROPOLITAN PLAYHOUSE.
