Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Manhattan Theatre Club will produce the World Premiere of The New Englanders by Jeff Augustin (Little Children Dream of God) and directed by Saheem Ali (Sugar in Our Wounds).

Can you ever really live the life you envisioned? In a mixed race family, a teenaged daughter and her dads are all trying to find happiness. Eisa wants to be the next Lauryn Hill and is struggling to break free of her sleepy New England town where she feels hopelessly trapped. Her fathers are being pulled in different directions of their own, one trying to re-connect with an old love, the other clinging to the path he always believed would be their future.  

Saheem Ali (Sugar in our Wounds) directs the MTC debut of Jeff Augustin’s (Little Children Dream of God) newest play.

The production will feature Teagle F. Bougere (Socrates, A Raisin In the Sun), Patrick Breen (The Normal Heart, Next Fall), Crystal Finn (Kingdom Come), Javier Muñoz (Hamilton, In the Heights), Uly Schlesinger (“Chicago Med”) and Kara Young (Hair Wolf).

The creative team for The New Englanders will include Arnulfo Maldonado (scenic design), Dede Ayite (costume design), Alan C. Edwards (lighting design) and Palmer Hefferan (sound design).
