Handmade poster for 1965 production of "Balm in Gilead." 

"When Lanford Wilson wrote ''Balm in Gilead,'' his first full-length play, he was still in his 20's and the Off Off Broadway theater movement was young. The play - a naturalistic visit with 29 low-life denizens of an all-night Upper Broadway coffee shop - caused a sensation at the Cafe La Mama in 1965; witnesses say that the doors had to be locked to keep out excess theatergoers." (NY Times, 1984)
