WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Balm in Gilead, Lanford Wilson's first full-length play, captures the lives of the disenfranchised, the lost, and the derelicts who hang out at an all-night diner on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Joe and Darlene, two young people who desire better lives, are at the center of the maelstrom, caught in the crosshairs of the turbulent 1960s. Poetic and haunting, Balm in Gilead resonates as strongly today as it did at its 1965 premiere at Ellen Stewart's Café MaMa.
