Miles away from the South Bronx where they grew up, two students unexpectedly rediscover each other on the eve of an interview that will determine their entire future. Each are looking to transfer to a prestigious northeast college, on the scholastic and athletic merits that the school has placed on them and deemed worthy. As they prepare to bare their souls and show the faculty what they think they want, Cristofer and Clarence have to decide whether to stick to their personal integrity or choose what they are willing to fake in order to call this beautiful brick-and-ivy bastion of privilege home. A brilliantly written, gut-punch of a play by Lucy Thurber, TRANSFERS strips the veneer off of meritocracy and asks us if we are willing to sacrifice ourselves to embrace a way out.

Reviews:

“Crowded Fire’s ‘Transfers’ demands fairness, and your attention.” by Lily Janiak

“Transfers compellingly asks: Who gets the elite education?” by Jean Schiffman.
