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 90 minutes, small groups of theatergoers will maintain social distance, listening through headphones, while actors perform behind the windows of the seven transformed Lincoln Road storefronts.
