About this show

The Hypocrites present Lanford Wilson's Balm In Gilead, a hard-hitting and graphic look at Manhattan's tempestuous counter-cultural scene. The play revolves around the junkies, pushers, prostitutes, and other freaks that inhabit an all-night SoHo greasy spoon. Lanford Wilson captures with gritty naturalism the look, feel, and sound of his subjects as each character harmonizes this fast-paced song of hope and despair. Sean Graney directs.
