Description: In this guided tour of the tenements and street corners of an American netherworld, Diane is a vibrant young woman growing up in East Harlem and encountering a panoply of characters -- from an Irish boyfriend and a married lover to an elderly Holocaust survivor and a drug-addicted friend -- who represent the dead ends she is desperate to evade.

In this one-woman show, Orlandersmith brings to life Theresa, a bright young girl infatuated with William Butler Yeats and David Bowie and determined to transcend her house of pain, as well as the vivid chorus of relatives, friends and neighbors who surround her.

A solo piece that vividly evokes the street life of New York in the '70s and a young woman's struggle to escape her soul-deadening environment. The play tells the story of two childhood friends, a pair of Harlem misfits: Alexis, who yearns to be a writer, and Jimmy, who wants to be an artist. Both find refuge in their aspirations from the taunts of neighborhood kids and the withering verbal abuse of their parents, but as they grow older their lives take dramatically different turns.
