Village Voices Frack Theatre
About This Show
Told in their own words, Village Voices is a series of interviews with real-life characters in New York’s West Village examining first hand accounts of events including the Stonewall Riots, the HIV/AIDS epidemic and life as a homeless trans youth in 21st century America. The underprivileged and forgotten, these interviews bring to life an unknown world that is at times heart-breaking but always gilded with hope and triumph in the face of overwhelming odds.
