The Village: A Disco Daydream is baaack!
Set in 1979 and loosely based on Our Town, The Village with themes of love, friendship, life, death and disco as it irreverently weaves its way from pre-AIDS New York City to the present day.
Joyous, clever and bittersweet, it’s a character-driven story of a time that no longer exists, yet whose essence remains a vital thread in the fabulous fabric of the collective queer consciousness.
Writer and performer Nora Burns‘ presents an intimate look at the queer life in Manhattan, where underneath the wild dancing and crackling dialogue, there’s a stealthy drama that packs a punch.
Now it is back by popular demand, because EVERYBODY loves it!
