Dutch Masters is set in New York City in the summer of 1992. In NYC’s hazy pre-Giuliani, pre-cellphone, pre-Metrocard days, a black kid and a white kid meet in a chance encounter on an uptown D train, chatting hoops, hip hop, and history.  Over the course of one afternoon, fear, guilt, longing and a cigar filled with weed allow one kid to take the other to a place neither even imagined possible.

The production will star Ian Duff (Homeland, Up North) and Jake Horowitz (Julie Taymor’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, David Cromer’s Our Town) with set by Jason Simms, costumes Ntokozo Kunene, lighting by Xavier Pierce, sound by Daniel Kluger, casting by Judy Bowman and stage management by Ingrid Pierson and Arielle Goldstein.
