written and performed by Steve Kidd '97
Sigh / Omelas is a poignant, moving drama about children who are affected by and afflicted with HIV and AIDS. This powerful play is based upon Kidd’s experiences working with these children in a summer camp. He portrays four characters and the narrator. His original dramatic text is interwoven with Le Guin’s haunting and provocative story of the fictional utopian city of Omelas, where people live in perpetual happiness and joy…but at what cost?
