Theatre 167's PIRIRA by J.Stephen Brantley, directed by Ari Laura Kreith 

As the African nation of Malawi erupts in riots around them, American aid workers Jack and Ericka take shelter in the storage room of a struggling NGO in Lilongwe. At the same time half a world away, Malawian student Gilbert and his gay co-worker Chad begin another dull day in the back room of a Manhattan florist. None of them can know how closely their lives are connected. While these two seemingly separate stories take place seven thousand miles apart, all four of the play’s actors share the same intimate physical space. PIRIRA explores the ways in which our lives are inextricably linked across cultures, continents, language, and time.
