Inspired in part by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Polaroid Stories takes place on an abandoned pier on the outermost edge of a city, a way-stop for dreamers, dealers, and desperadoes, a no-man’s land where runaways seek camaraderie, refuge, and escape. Serpentine routes from the street to the heart characterize the interactions in this spellbinding tale of young people pushed to society’s fringe.

 “Naomi Iizuka’s dark and gritty Polaroid Stories delivers a gut-punch of love lost, violence, homelessness, and addiction. Sure, it will kill your buzz and ruin your date night. Sometimes good theater does. And Polaroid Stories is brutally good.” —DC Theatre Scene
