Vagabond Inventions returns to New York with an expanded version of UNDER THE SKIFF, devised by Maja Bieler, Jennifer Sargent, Audrey Lamarque, and Iciar Trespaderne, and directed by Maja Bieler and Jennifer Sargent.

In the barren immigration office of a strange country, two naïve applicants wait (and wait… and wait….) for their papers to be approved. Between escapades with naturalization forms, barking loudspeakers, and a tangle of miscommunications in wacky foreign languages, our heroines navigate absurd catastrophes small and large with infectious optimism and remarkable endurance. Get your passport to absurdity stamped at UNDER THE SKIFF.

Recommended for ages 12 and up, UNDER THE SKIFF offers engaging tales of immigration that was inspired by true stories of female immigrants who journeyed alone to London or New York from Kenya, Ecuador, and Haiti.
