In The Golden Bulldog, a Canal Street seer declares: “Language keeps the lights on, Mister. Don’t give up on it yet.” Such hope, such hubris, so quintessentially New York! Still, language may not fend off disaster when a person of prominence is shot and grievously wounded on a golf course — igniting a manhunt in the city. This play, wide in its diversity, is tethered to those who congregate at the historic corner of Canal Street and The Bowery. These lynchpin characters and those in their orbit remind us that Oppression and Resistance are as old as History and Theatre and serve as most potent protagonists. “Tell all the truth but tell it slant” said Emily Dickinson. In this play, I straightaway tried to do that.
