Tiers a new play by reg e gaines

Yendor Theatre Company presents a workshop production of Tiers, a gripping new play by Tony award winning writer, reg e gaines; directed by Andrew Binger.

The Play
Set in 1970s Jersey City, Tiers follows the friendship of 4 young black men: Angelo, Earl, ‘Heads’ and ‘Ice.’ What starts out as a simple night of cards, drinks, and jokes among close friends, quickly turns violent. The established world suddenly becomes one of isolation. Tiers masterfully exposes the fragility of the male psyche while highlighting how rapidly even the greatest of friendships are tossed aside when a male’s ego is challenged.
