Set in 1979 NYC, The Village bounces around and breaks 4th walls, 5th dimensions and every theater rule in the book. As a crazy collage of characters come by to drink, drug, dream, dish, and of course break out into disco dancing, the play centers around Trade, a hustler living with ‘Old George’, who brings home his latest trick, an earnest NYU student.
Filled with high jinx, low kinks, softcore porn and rock hard abs, The Village offers a life-affirming lift, full of love, friendship, fantasy, fashion and fun… a valentine to youth, age, spirit, NYC, and Donna Summer!
Playwright Nora Burns, creator of the critically acclaimed David’s Friend, is a founding member of comedy groups Unitard and the Nellie Olesons. The Village is dedicated to all the indomitable spirits who went to that great disco in the sky before they got to finish to their story.
