A visceral blend of classical mythology and real-life stories told by street kids, Naomi lizuka’s Polaroid Stories journeys into a dangerous world where myth-making fulfills a fierce need for transcendence.  Inspired in part by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Polaroid Stories takes place on the outermost edge of a city, a way stop for dreamers, dealers, and desperadoes, a no-man’s land where runaways seek camaraderie, refuge, and escape. Serpentine routes from the street to the heart characterize the interactions in this spellbinding tale of young people pushed to society’s fringe.


“Polaroid Stories is a well written dark drama which speaks about some of the heavy issues in the lives of street youth in the city. This not a heartwarming story, but a dark social commentary from a very up close and personal viewpoint.”

-Chicago Critic
