The Unbuilt City
by Keith Bunin

Making Productions teamed up once again with Graffiti Productions (who’s last collaboration was the award winning Doubt, A Parable last year) and To The Moon (Old Fools) to produce the European Premier of The Unbuilt City. The play was staged at the Kings Head Theatre (Islington) from the 6th of June to the 30th. A new play by Keith Bunin, (author of The Busy World is Hushed) The Unbuilt City had a preliminary showing at the Vassar & New York Stage and Film’s Powerhouse Season in July 2015. The play was directed by theatre veteran Glen Walford and starring stage and screen icon Sandra Dickinson.

On a cold afternoon in February, Jonah knocks on the door of a townhouse in Brooklyn Heights. He’s come to ask socialite turned recluse Claudia to sell her famously secret art collection to a university archive. Delving deep within their own history, Jonah and Claudia will face the ghosts of the men they each loved and of the lives they lived in a bid to win each other’s trust and discover the mystery behind New York’s most fabled relic: The Unbuilt City.
