Take a journey along historic Cornelia Street with legendary Beat poet and playwright Diane di Prima. These 8 monologues are all dedicated to—and were originally performed by—Diane's artist friends and lovers in 1968 Greenwich Village. These Monuments provide startlingly unfiltered and unblinking revelations of these characters; they open up to us and offer a brief glimpse into the rich Bohemian worlds they inhabit. These snapshots, made at a particularly volatile moment in history, have been reinterpretted for our contemporary society—one that is forging its own way through a challenging and turbulent time.
