The Vagrancy's WHAT OF THE NIGHT? to Run 10/10-11/2The Vagrancy's WHAT OF THE NIGHT? to Run 10/10-11/2
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2014

What of the Night? is a poignant saga chronicling the life of Birdie and her family as they traverse the moral and financial bankruptcy that is poverty. Destitute and isolated, a 14-year old Birdie makes the brave decision to leave her family. 'I want something from life!' she cries as she abandons her loved ones in hopes of finding something more than sickness and crime. This decision propels Birdie, her family, and the viewer into a 60-year journey where estranged family and friends entwine and collide in poetic stories of love, impoverishment, and dreams. Maria Irene Fornes delivers a masterful piece of theatre that entertains us, humors us, breaks our hearts, and ultimately challenges us to examine our own complicity in the unbridled divide between the haves and the have nots across America today.
