Join the College of Arts, Media and Design’s Department of Theatre for DOWNTOWN CROSSING, a digital co-production in partnership with Company One Theatre.

On Marathon Monday, seven undocumented Bostonians cross paths on the Orange Line. When their train is delayed due to police action at Downtown Crossing, they share their stories — both hopeful and heart wrenching — in intimate, intersecting monologues that spotlight what it’s like to build a life while holding your breath.


DOWNTOWN CROSSING is the culmination of Company One’s two-year Boston (un)Documented Project, during which Company One PlayLab alum David Valdes — supported by a partnership between Company One and the Boston Public Library — interviewed current and former undocumented immigrants, DACA recipients, immigrant rights advocates, community organizers, and family members of the undocumented from the Greater Boston area. With this fully realized virtual production — rehearsed and performed entirely via Zoom — Company One brings its long commitment to the pioneering of new theatrical forms to the digital space.


All tickets to DOWNTOWN CROSSING are Pay-What-You-Want, with no minimum. Learn more and get your tickets here.
