The Poor of New York
by Dion Boucicault
April 19 - May 19, 2019

I am penniless, broken--
but I never felt my poverty 'til now.

A financial crash, a government shut-down, and a banker grows rich off another man's fortune,
while that man's family sinks deeper and deeper into debt. 
Their lives are all intertwined with a young aristocrat,
an immigrant family, and a whimsical, opportunistic thief,
all struggling with newfound poverty.
But in the melodramatic universe,
deliverance comes from unexpected places.

A genre-defining melodrama
from one of the 19th century's  masters
with quite a lot to tell us today,
of course.
