Home What's On Stage Underground


UndergroundMan has been hiding in the shadows for over 30 years. He emerges from his isolation to speak to you. Are you friend or foe? Is it safe for him to re-emerge? Has the system changed? He tests the waters, uploading secret messages to you through your computer, Facebook, email, video, and blogs. Then one evening you receive an anonymous invitation to fully enter his digital -- and mental – world. He comes to visit you on your computer. The further you delve, the closer you come to understanding his life as a black man in America. In this world premiere adaptation, EgoPo transports Dostoyevsky's 19th century existential masterpiece to contemporary Philadelphia with the city's own controversial racial history as its new setting.

Streaming URL will be sent to the email address on file 24 hours in advance of the performance.
