The Production Company presents
GOODBYE NEW YORK, GOODBYE HEART
A new play by Lally Katz
Directed by Oliver Butler
What does it mean to be “alive” when we spend our lives in virtual worlds? In Goodbye New York, Goodbye Heart, Lally Katz plunges us into a phantasmagorical yet oh-so-recognizable cyber-universe where the living and the dead jostle, time doesn’t pass, and food never seems to fill you up. You can download almost anything – even emotions – and the dead still live, but you can’t bring them back to the real world… or can you?

The Production Company exchanges challenging new work for the theater between Australia and the United States, promoting and deepening cultural exchange between the U.S. and Australia, and encouraging artists to explore the relationship between the two countries. Hailed by NYTheatre.com as “Indie Theater at its very best,” The Production Company has premiered new work from important playwrights from the United States and Australia. The company’s recent season included critically-acclaimed premieres of Blair Singer’s The Most Damaging Wound and Patricia Cornelius’ Love. Artistic Director Mark Armstrong founded the Production Company with Nicolle Bradford in 2004.
The New York Times praised The Production Company’s production of Blair Singer’s The Most Damaging Wound, calling it “Clever, engrossing and skillfully directed by Mark Armstrong. Every character is affectionately drawn.” The show was also a Back Stage Critic’s Pick. NYTheatre.com hailed their production of The Australia Project as “Fascinating stuff! A brisk, swift, and necessary punch in the gut that’s both very funny and very much on target…strong performances [and] expert direction.” “Patricia Cornelius’s script is simply brilliant…Mark Armstrong’s direction is sure and crisp,” declared NYTheatre.com about the company’s production of Love.
