A gritty tale of young people living on the street is told through a raw blend of real life stories and classical mythology. Using poetry and coarse street language, the characters smear their reality with lies, wild yarns and clever deceits to make sense of past abuse, lost love, violence and drug addiction. Creative use of lighting, video, music and water swaths the intimate space of the Black Box Theatre turning the drama into beautiful, haunting vignettes that hit you right in the gut.
Director Marc Pinate adds, “There’s a terrible beauty that the playwright has created. It’s actually our biggest challenge in producing this show—working with horrible, bleak circumstances; but within that tragedy, finding moments of beauty and respite from the darkness."
