Balm in Gilead
by Lanford Wilson directed by Jacque Drew
Performed by Unitec's graduating actors

Meet the losers who refuse to lose...

Balm in Gilead has been best described as Lanford Wilson's documentary homage to the lower depths of New York's Upper West side. Written in 1965, it is less a story, than a collection of characters, caught in a coffee shop, while the world revolves around them.

Based on the writer's own experiences eavesdropping on patrons of a neighbourhood diner, it is a raucous symphony of simultaneous conversations - interlocking, overlapping, rising and subsiding - as scenes develop out of them. These are the riff-raff, the bums, the petty thieves, the scum, the lost, the desperate, the dispossessed, the cool - spiralling in an endless whirlpool - just trying to keep their heads above water. They fight. They love. They survive. They live. Balm in Gilead is life itself, trapped in a play.

Performed by Unitec’s graduating third year actors directed by Jacque Drew.
