Out on an abandoned pier, on the farthest edge of a rusted and dangerous city, dealers, dreamers and desperadoes gather to perform (and transform) in Polaroid Stories. In ancient myth, the Olympian gods disguised themselves as ants, serpents, shepherds, bulls and even “showers of gold” … but playwright Naomi Iizuka was the first to suggest that gods could be gutter punks, too. In this masterful mashup of Roman myth and documentary theater, Iizuka blends real-life stories from street-based youth and sex workers with ancient myth in a bold re-imagining of Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Take a journey to a dangerous world where storytelling has the power to transform a reality in which life is cheap and violence is common. Jackie Honold directs a new production of this potent, gripping drama for The Avenue Theater’s Emerging Voices Series.
