Formed in 1979, the Baltimore Voices Company was the Theatre Project's contribution to a larger, multi-facetted local history initiative known as the Baltimore Neighborhood Heritage Project.  In order to create a theatrical production that was performed throughout the city in 1980, company members utilized existing BNHP oral histories and conducted their own tape-recorded interviews. The BVC's interviews were organized around specific themes, including labor, education, and community organizing.
