Danny Hoch's multi-ethnic collage of characters will speak at Yale in two weeks. Well, Yale Repertory Theatre, to be exact, Feb. 23-24.

Characters in Hoch's solo show range from a philosophizing, heroin addicted prison inmate with AIDS to a pimple-faced white teenager from Montana to a promiscuous rap star to a Puerto Rican office worker taken aback by her boyfriend's desire to wear a condom. The show is developed and directed by Jo Bonney.

Hoch, a native of Queens, won an OBIE award for Some People, which toured 35 cities in the US, visited three foreign countries, and became an HBO special. Jails was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and will be made into a feature film and spoken word CD.

Nov. 11, 1998 Villard Books released a compilation volume of Some People and Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop. The book, "Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop and Some People" sells for $12.95 as a paperback published by Villard Books, a division of Random House.

For tickets ($11-$22) and information on Jails at Yale Rep, Feb. 23 24, call (203) 432-1234. -- By Christine Ehren and David Lefkowitz
