Arthur Laurents’ THE ENCLAVE (Late April 2018- Date TBA)


Helmed by Rattlestick Associate Producer, Victor Cervantes Jr., this little-known play, first and only ever produced in 1973, will be performed on the Rattlestick stage, and then travel to New York’s other four boroughs.

During this project, Middle Voice members will engage with high schools in Brooklyn and the Bronx, immigrant community centers in Queens, and public service workers and their families on Staten Island. These communities have been identified for the existing intersections of LGBTQIA+ rights and housing inequity within them. 

The Enclave examines the horror of gay shame, privilege inequity, and the need to have like-minded peers in order to survive. Funded by a generous grant from the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation’ Arthur Laurents Centennial Award. April 2018.
