subUrbia is a play by Eric Bogosian chronicling the nighttime activities of a group of aimless 20-somethings still living in their suburban New Jersey hometown and their reunion with a former high school classmate who has become a successful musician. It's a slacker version of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh with the musician Pony's return giving the lie to the excuses the rest use to remain stuck in their meaningless dead-end hometown existences.

Productions[edit]

The play was originally produced at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater of the Lincoln Center Theater from April 27 through August 28, 1994, featuring Martha Plimpton, Josh Hamilton and Steve Zahn. The director Robert Falls won a 1994-1995 OBIE Award for the production.[1] It was presented in 2006 at Second Stage Theatre with Kieran Culkin, Gaby Hoffmann and Jessica Capshaw, and was directed by Jo Bonney.[2] A film version was made in 1996 starring Steve Zahn, Parker Posey and Giovanni Ribisi.[3]
