"I wish to hear anything that 600 Highwaymen has to say ... the company's guilelessness is central to its beautiful art." - The New Yorker

A child’s house burns down, forcing her to leave everyone and everything she has behind. From this moment a singular journey to create a life begins. Narrated by five young girls, the piece tells the story of the life of a woman from age three to age 80. How do we become who we are? What is the trajectory of one life?
Genuine and straightforward with an ingenius theatrical style, this new work packs a serious emotional punch. Featuring the original songs of Obie-award winner David Cale.
Please note: this piece is performed by children. It is not necessarily children’s theater.
600 HIGHWAYMEN is helmed by husband and wife directorial team Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone. They are dedicated to a radical approach to live art, constructing events designed to create intimacy among a group of strangers. The company has earned accolades as a rising star of contemporary American theater, with distinctions awarded by The Village Voice, Flavorpill, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York.
