Life Story Theater Oral History Project

Historical Information

This collection of oral histories was conducted during 1987 and 1988 by !Improvise! Inc., an improvisational theater group. The purpose was to uncover the past experiences of a group of older Hispanic citizens, most of whom emigrated to the city of Providence from the Dominican Republic.

The oral history interviews were to be used as the basis of a dramatic presentation developed and performed by the interviewees in conjunction with the project staff.
