YOU-the City was an intimate Manhattanwide play for an audience of one. On keeping an appointment at an office in Times Square, a client (audience memeber) was passed through a series of mainly scripted encounters at both indoor and outdoor locations in Midtown and the Westside of Manhattan, including a church, an apartment, a car ride, and reaching a climax of realization when the client became the object of one of the various handoffs in a Hell's Kitchen playground. YOU-the City was produced in New York City in 1988. It was re-produced in London in 1989 by the London International Festival of Theater. A production in The Hague is to take place in 1990.This book includes the original New York script of the performance, performance instructions, notes, maps, charts, and photographs of the event as it was played out.
