Restless City

Tells the story of an African immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City where music is his passion, life is a hustle and falling in love is his greatest risk.


Based on the acclaimed play that the Independent of London hailed as “a bracingly uncensored exploration of the tensions and treacheries in a beleaguered male subculture”, PONIES is about three men in a treacherous subset of society, and uses the gambling parlor as a backdrop for a provocative modern morality tale. Ultimately, these men-immigrants, Americans, human beings-are forced to protect from one another their most valuable commodity: the right to stay on American soil.
