About the Company: Old Kent Road Theater

The Old Kent Road Theater situates idiosyncratic ensemble pieces against the chaos and concrete of New York City, seeking authentic, evocative performance committed to the comedy of desire, the physicality of loss, and the possibility of new open spaces. Founded in 2005 by Eric Bland and Scott Eckert, the Old Kent Road Theater has been invited to perform at various downtown theaters including The Ontological-Hysteric Theater, The Brick, Dixon Place, and The Bushwick Starr.   OKRT plays have been noted for their ‘vibrant characters…heartfelt passion, and spirited volleys of non sequiturs’ (Village Voice) and described as ‘downtown theatre at its best’ (New York Cool.com).  Martin Denton of nytheatre.com recently noted, ‘Eric Bland is turning into the Woody Allen of his generation, possibly.’ www.oldkentroadtheater.com
