A new off Broadway play is set to debut at The Theatre at St. Clement’s Jan. 15–Feb. 16. The play titled “Eco Village,” is somewhat based on the life of young playwright Phoebe Nir, and her experiences at the well-known Vermont-based puppet theater — Bread and Puppet Theatre.

The story follows the character Robin, played by actress Arianna Williams, currently living on the streets and navigating herself around to find shelter.

On her trek to find a home at an eco village she read about online, Robin thinks it will be a safe haven, and instead comes across a different type of environment she did not expect.

At the village, her interpersonal and life skills come to the test, and she forms a romantic relationship with a young man. And the pairing leads to several instances where their love affair and village are in jeopardy.

The plays consists of six cast members, and has a runtime of one hour and 20 minutes.

“Eco Village” at The Theatre at St. Clement’s [423 W. 46th Street between Ninth and Tenth avenues in Hell’s Kitchen,] Mon. and Wed., 7 pm, Thu–Sat., at 8 pm. Sun. at 3 pm. $35-69.
