“Ominous Men” is a gothic horror tale about race, poverty, drugs, misogyny AND violence in America. Three men are confronted by their ferocious pasts in the abandoned Concourse Plaza Hotel basement in the Bronx on July 13, 1977: Butch, the Nuyorican caretaker who’s been digging a pit looking for buried treasure, his nervous cousin Goyo, and Butch’s drug sponsor and ex-Black Panther Yancy. This night of drinking, camaraderie, and “Bones” (dominoes) turns violent when the Blackout hits, a stranger climbs out of the pit, and the ghosts of a Holocaust survivor and murdered woman appear.

“Ominous Men” is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC. “Ominous Men” is the winner of MultiStages 2017 New Works Contest.
