Balm in Gilead takes place in 1966 in Frank's cafe, an all-night coffee shop on Manhattan's Upper West Side peopled by a makeshift community of dealers, junkies, hustlers, prostitutes, dreamers and runaways. One of the milestones of the dynamic Off-Off-Broadway theatre movement, this vivid and powerful play, first produced by La Mama Experimental Theatre Club, illuminates the bleak and terrifying world of young exiles and outcasts in New York's upper Broadway area.
