Following an acclaimed, sold-out run along Miami’s famed Lincoln Road, Seven Deadly Sins comes to New York City's Meatpacking District this summer. The 70-minute play includes seven 10-minute works, written by some of the country's most provocative playwrights: Ngozi Anyanwu (Gluttony), Thomas Bradshaw (Sloth), MJ Kaufman (Pride), Moisés Kaufman (Greed), Jeffrey LaHoste (Envy), Ming Peiffer (Wrath), and Bess Wohl (Lust). Seven Deadly Sins tickets are on sale now.
For each play, audience members will watch the performances taking place in a glass block. Audiences will hear the production through headphones, provided at the performance. The performances will continue rain or shine, involve walking approximately three blocks.
Details on the seven plays in Seven Deadly Sins can be found below:
Tell Me Everything You Know (inspired by Gluttony) by Ngozi Anyanwu
Two women in a garden. One knows everything, the other hungry to know anything. Tell Me Everything You Know is a lesson in curiosity, information overload, and generally just minding your own damn business.
Hard (inspired by Sloth) by Thomas Bradshaw
Viagra is just about the only thing Jeff isn’t consuming these days. His and his wife’s sex life is going through a dry spell thanks to Jeff’s commitment to video games and not much else, but tonight she won’t take no for an answer.
Wild Pride (inspired by Pride) by MJ Kaufman
Not all advice is good advice… Wild Pride follows a trans YouTube influencer’s quest to give his followers the confidence he thinks they need…no matter the cost.
All I Want is Everything (inspired by Greed) by Moisés Kaufman
Two siblings, one inheritance. Things get dirty even when they’re not the ones digging the grave six feet under.
Naples (inspired by Envy) by Jeffrey LaHoste
In the Palace of Versailles, Princess Charlotte discovers a secret that might bring ruin to her husband’s young lover, Philippe. Will she protect him or throw him to the lions? A love triangle with only two sides can be very unstable. But who will prevail when their envy gets the best of them?
Longhorn (inspired by Wrath) by Ming Peiffer
What sins will you confess when pushed to the limit? A professional dominatrix whips her newest client into shape (literally and figuratively) as she discovers his questionable beliefs.
Lust by Bess Wohl
An exotic dancer takes to the pole, business as usual, but when her worst nightmare walks in, it’s not just her clothes that get stripped away.
