Polk Street by T. Chase Meacham

Polk Street is a new play by the Georgetown University alumnus, T. Chase Meacham.  It is based on Polk Street Stories by Joey Plaster. The play presents many diverse characters as they struggle, suffer, and hope while facing change in themselves and in their neighborhood due to gentrification.  What was once a queer, working class neighborhood in San Francisco's Tenderloin District, Polk Street is turning into an upscale one, and the audience lives the change along with the characters.
