Against the Grain

Against the Grain is a multi-city theater project that annually showcases a classic drama among the abandoned grain elevators at Silo City in Buffalo, New York.  We are interested in working with students, theater communities and other creative forces to cultivate this groundbreaking festival.

Against the Grain presents Faust

Playwright and Festival Director Neil Wechsler has transformed Goethe’s twenty-three hour masterpiece into a two-hour adaptation that likens Buffalo Niagara’s industrial past to Goethe’s fable of the rise and fall of western civilization.  Accomplished director and actor David Oliver will direct Wechsler’s adaptation. The two teamed previously to create the acclaimed production of Ibsen’s Emperor and Galilean at Torn Space Theater.
