The Sty of the Blind Pig (1974, Broadway Theater)


Set in Chicago in the early nineteen‐sixties, the story focuses on the push‐pull relationship between an elderly, domineering mother and her aging, repressed and lonely daughter. As the two characters circle each other in their tight little world of bitterness and love, a blind street singer, looking for a woman he had loved years ago, stumbles into their ghetto apartment and precipitates a confrontation between the two women and with themselves.
