Gritty Lanford Wilson Drama Balm in Gilead
Set in Frank's Cafe, a greasy spoon in New York City's Upper Broadway neighborhood, Balm in Gilead centers on Joe, a cynical drug dealer, and Darlene, a new arrival to the big city, over the course of three days. Joe and Darlene spend the night together just after meeting, but he soon pushes her away, overwhelmed by his debt to a local kingpin named Chuckles. Darlene, meanwhile, finds herself ill-equipped to handle life in a New York slum, and she becomes increasingly vulnerable to the attentions of the various low-rent men who hang around the cafe looking for an easy target. See this gritty drama by one of America's finest playwrights, Lanford Wilson, at California Stage in Sacramento.
