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. The musician Pony's return strips away illusions and excuse to reveal the meaningless dead-end existences of everyone.
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 (Sooze), Josh Hamilton (Jeff), Firdous Bamji (Norman), Tim Guinee (Tim), Wendy Hoopes (Bee-Bee), Zak Orth (Pony), Babette Renee Props (Erica), Samia Shoaib (Pakeesa) and Steve Zahn (Buff). The director Robert Falls won a 1994-1995 OBIE Award for the production.
The play was presented in 2006 at Second Stage Theatre with Kieran Culkin (Buff), Gaby Hoffmann (Sooze) and Jessica Capshaw (Erica), Daniel Eric Gold (Jeff), Michael Esper (Pony), Halley Feiffer (Bee-Bee), Manu Narayan (Norman) and Diksha Basu (Pakeeza) and was directed by Jo Bonney.
