About The Common Air - Off Broadway

Show Info


Alex Lyras and Robert McCaskill's comedy-drama The Common Air links six distinct characters during the mother of all delays at JFK Airport. The reason is unknown and a spiraling game of "telephone" ensues in an effort to uncover the truth. Characters include an Iraqi Cab Driver with a winning Reality show idea, an Art Gallery Owner seduced by ancient Greek cave art, a Corporate Attorney imparting rapid fire, ethically gray advice, a sample stealing DJ named PJ, a sinister Philosophy Professor mixing logic and irrationality in a west Texas accent, and an Iraqi-American just returned from civil war in Baghdad. What happens when the cell phones die and laptops lose their charge? When we're forced to revert to non-high-speed communication? Are we even capable anymore, or have our brains devolved into hard drives that crash at the slightest wave of turbulence?
