This Is Not A Theatre Company's Subway Plays is a trilogy of site-specific, sensory podplays for the New York City Subway.  Armed with nothing more than a set of headphones and an mp3 file, spectators ride the subway while listening to the recorded production - every surrounding sight, smell, and sound plays a supporting role in the experience.

“What we are asking you to do is download the app, put your earbuds in and then look around at the windows and the people around you instead of looking into your own personal space,” Mee said. “We ask you to actively co-create the play with us by mixing in your experience.” - Director Erin Mee in conversation with Town & Village
