This is a video I created for Margaret Holloway, a homeless woman who prior to being stricken with schizophrenia had attained a BA from Bennington College and an MA from Yale University. She now performs classical literature on the streets of New Haven, CT, for survival. When I met her I was so touched I knew I had to create a composition about her. I composed the music which is performed by my band Styrocultural Antidote and edited the video footage. I have also released a DVD "The Shakespeare Lady" which includes this video and another version with band footage. The DVD also contains two of Margarets raw street performances and a picture gallery. Half the proceeds go directly to her. I hope this touches you and make you think about how such a problem exists in such a powerful economic country. Peace, Ronnie Neuhauser
