Postcards From Over the Edge


Karel Sloane-Boekbinder // artist

Postcards From Over the Edge is a new theatrical work that will explore the court case on “Crime Against Nature” handled by local New Orleans attorneys including Bill Quigley and by the Center for Constitutional Rights as well as New Orleans’ complex relationship with prostitution. Five New Orleans-based artists (three cis-gender women and two transwomen) are developing this work collaboratively. To explore this relationship, the play is shifts between two time periods, the Storyville era – connecting when prostitution was legal and any traveling businessman could pick up a Blue Book (, and the modern day civil rights suit. We aim to accurately depict how the plaintiffs of the case are treated by society, the difficulties they encounter and the struggles they have to work through as a result of being charged with “Crime Against Nature.”
