A diverse group of nationally recognized, award-winning playwrights,  Hilary Bettis, Nilo Cruz, Moisés Kaufman, Rogelio Martinez, Dael Orlandersmith, Carmen Pelaez, and Aurin Squire will premiere seven newly commissioned short plays, each focused on one deadly sin: Lust, Greed, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Gluttony and Pride. In rotation over 2 hrs., 15 mins., small groups of theatergoers will maintain social distance, listening through headphones, while actors perform behind the windows of the seven transformed Lincoln Road storefronts.
