Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A penetrating study of character and the destructive cycle which so often characterizes life in a big city black ghetto. Employing a series of interlocking vignettes, made up of street encounters, dialogues and monologues, the author counterpoints the lives of two young prostitutes; the man who earlier deserted one of them; and a high school age couple whose future is surely shadowed in the present existence of the others. Deftly mixing humor and sadness, the play captures the feel of the streets and of a way of life in which people are so scarred and trapped by their experiences that hope and self-confidence are stunted and betrayed in the bitter search for simple dignity, happiness and individual fulfillment.
A powerful, affecting play successfully presented Off-Broadway by New York's noted Manhattan Theatre Club. "…remarkable human drama." —NY Times. "…always fascinating, and every minute of it is believable." —The New Yorker. "Richard Wesley is a talented, committed black playwright." —Cue Magazine.
