Fell at the New School for Drama Theater

7.15 Productions and Columbia University's Black Theater Ensemble present Fell, by Harrison David Rivers, at the New School for Drama Theater from 9 - 15 Aug 2008, as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Fell: What are you willing to risk to break through the glass ceiling?

Since the civil rights movement gave African Americans equality under the law, an elusive, but very real struggle has emerged: equality in the workplace. Meet Jesse Metcalfe, a successful black businessman one step away from reaching the next rung on the corporate ladder. Facing pressure from his status obsessed wife, not to mention his own desire to rise above societal expectations, it seems that Jesse is willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead.

Directed by Jess McLeod, Fell features Melissa Joyner, Rory Lipede, Jack Perry, Laurence Stepney, Kendale Winbush and Jehan O. Young.

The creative team includes Brandon Giles (sets), Jesca Prudencio (costumes) and K.J. Hardy (lighting).
