PRECARIAT

PRODUCTIONS

Founded in 2016, we are a film and theater production company based in New York.

We aim to disrupt storytelling as usual, and make our stuff by any means necessary.

We’re makers, not salespeople.

We’re outsiders, we’re inclusive, we’re rigorous, we’re generous, we make our own space and help others make theirs,

We’re straight-forward, all-in,

We take risks, give no fucks and never quit.

“Without hesitation, I suspect this “Streetcar” will long reign as among the most visceral and memorable productions of a Tennessee Williams play that I have ever been privileged to witness.  It is, in short: a must-see,” - Robert Russo, Stage Left

THE SPARK | THE WALL | THE ESCAPE

three solo theater pieces

Inside a Pocket, Behind a Wall is a gripping and imaginative new theater experience which explores the danger of indifference, the resilience of the oppressed, and the strength of human faith. Told with fierce, lighthearted, and diverse characterizations using traditional Balinese Masks, Inside a Pocket, Behind a Wall is an immediate, demanding and imaginative new theater piece.

Written & Performed by Raphael Eilenberg.

Skin Deep, Skin Tight examines how racism, the demise of the Civil Rights Movement, the conditions of economic inequality and the destruction of Hip Hop affects poor urban communities- primarily Black American Males. It’s an epic, poetic depiction of how the painful reality of racism tightly confines some Black and Latinos into spaces that leave them with little or no room to breathe.

Directed & Written by Kymbali Craig, Performed by Sam Encarnación

Empanada for a Dream is a poignant and entertaining portrait of family and neighborhood – set against the secret that destroys it all.  It’s a haunting tale about growing up by getting out. And coming back -- to one boy’s Lower East Side.

Written & Performed by Juan Francisco Villa
