A formerly homeless photographer. The bartender from Aunt Charlie's Lounge, a local drag bar. A retired Tenderloin police captain. A Cambodian refugee and juvenile delinquent-turned-youth counselor. These are just some of the many characters inhabiting the new play "Tenderloin," at Cutting Ball Theater. The piece uses documentary-style techniques to take the pulse of the complex and gritty neighborhood. We meet the director and some of the cast.
