Raphael Nash Thompson

Never-before seen in New York! In 1948 Elian Kazan first workshopped these scenes at the Actors Studio, and that work grew into the legendary Camino Real. Much more than a preliminary sketch, this one-act play captures the essence of Williams' dreamlike meditation on alienation, beauty and death.


"Target Margin is a company as visceral as it is cerebral"

-The Guardian

"It provides aan interesting look at the writer's process. Thanks to Target Margin for bringing it to light."


"David Herskovits has mounted a lively and energetic staging at The Ohio Theatre..."

-The New York Times

Ayesha Ngaujah

Linda Powell


Using the rythms of music and memory, Eisa tells the story of a radical upbringing on the dividing line between Oakland and Berkeley, California -- in a family that includes her aunt, professor and activist Angela Davis.

In a hip-hop/theater hybrid for five acotrs. Uses the artfully random structure of a mixtape to tell a story of growing up in Berkeley in the '70s, and her struggle to make her own way in the shadow of an activist family which includes her aunt, Angela Davis.
