Based on real interviews the playwright conducted with kids living on the streets, Polaroid Stories re-imagines myths of Orpheus & Eurydice, Philomel, Echo & Narcissus and others from Ovid's Metamorphosis to explore the lives and dreams of those who often are forgotten. These groups of young people, pushed to the fringes of society, attract and repel each other, and compete for attention,moving back and forth between stories, lies, beauty and violence in a constant battle for trust, selfhood and transcendence.
