Join us for an original, multi-media play about the history and challenges of this historic neighborhood! Developed from 50+ interviews with local residents, it has been run as a youth summer project in partnership with BPS, METCO, Inc. and Bunker Hill Community College with the intention of helping to de-stigmatize this Boston neighborhood. The young people that have taken part in this piece have learned not just the history of the neighborhood, but also about gentrification as well as a myriad of overlapping issues that make up the story of a place. This play has been developed so that actors and audience members alike might gain a greater sense of the diversity and resiliency found in this robust community. You are invited to stay for a post-show discussion.
