New York City
Set in the late 1980s, Street Children explores the repression, romantic idealism, and high cost of living within the transgender and queer community of New York City’s lower Hudson piers. The play follows the intertwining journeys of three young people reeling after the murder of their beloved street mother. They must choose either the thrills and camaraderie of life as they know it or the safety and stability of a quieter existence — albeit one potentially defined by isolation and ostracism.
Specializing in provocative yet accessible theater, the Vertigo Theater Company proudly presents Street Children‘s world premiere. Jenna Worsham directs; the playwright is Vertigo Theater’s own artistic director, Pia Scala-Zankel.
Note: for mature audiences (ages 16 and up).
