Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Filmed independently in Boston, Dark End of the Street was the follow-up (but not the sequel) to the Boston-based indie Billy in the Lowlands. The same director (Jan Egleson) and star (Henry Tomaszewski) teamed up for this wholly believable evocation of blue-collar life in a big, impersonal metropolis. Tomaszewski and Laura Harrington portray white teenagers, who look on in horror as their African American friend is accidentally killed. The cast is largely comprised of performers from the Theatre Company of Boston. The one recognizable "name" in Dark End of the Street is veteran film baddie Lance Henriksen.
