by Lisa Ramirez
directed by Michael French
inspired by Maxim Gorky’s The Lower Depths

Following the TBA Award–winning TO THE BONE (2017), Associate Artist Lisa Ramirez offers a fresh take on Maxim Gorky’s groundbreaking 1901 drama The Lower Depths, re-locating his unflinching portrait of poverty in 20th-century Russia to a homeless encampment in modern-day Oakland.

At the Village of Radical Acceptance, residents undertake the daily struggle for food, sleep, safety, and stability under the maternal watch of Mama Gwen. But as the layers of their world unfold, the city around them is closing in.
