A woman reclaims a group of lost souls from the street, is she an unselfish "good Samaritan"? Or are there other motivations usually left unsaid? With Blood, O'Hara takes a look at life in the streets, the struggle to regain dignity and hope while facing overwhelming odds.

O'Hara staged his Insurrection: Holding History at The Public Theater in the 1995-96 season to critical success. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Van Lier Fellow at New Dramatists, The Mark Taper Forum's Sherwood Award, the John Golden Award, Newsday's1996 Oppenheimer Award for Best New American Play, and a 1996 NEA/TCG Theatre Residency at the American Conservatory Theatre.

O'Hara is also currently developing 14 An American Maul for San Francisco's ACT and Shout!, a Gospel Opera heading for Broadway in Autumn of 2000.

The cast for Blood includes: Eliot Angle, Christine Campbell, Robin Cornett, Benja K., Arlene A. McGruder, Edward Natternberg, and Heather Simms. For tickets ($12) or more information on Brave Blood, call (212) 420-8877.
