A small group of women living on the fringes of society, wrapped in bandages and loneliness, deal with denial and acceptance of being the unwanted. They are the embodiment of all those who are alienated: the homeless, the poor, the diseased, the unpopular. This is the story of their struggle, persevering with the never ceasing ability to dream and to love.
Lepers was originally presented by Punchinello Players of Utica Free Academy, Utica, New York in January, 1987.
