A playful, poetic look at the aspirations and inner fire that fuel all who’ve ever landed on New York’s shores. It follows three ambitious New Netherlanders recently arrived to the original Dutch settlement; a waterlogged newcomer washed ashore, searching for purpose and footing on this unfamiliar island; and a gaggle of competing city officials each hungry to see their needs met as they navigate the shifting tides of climate change and “urban renewal.” Based on equal parts historical research, contemporary interviews with long-term New Yorkers, and the heartfelt imagination of award-winning playwright Ben Holbrook, Between Two Rivers explores what it means to make your way in this wild city.
