Report from the Street: Voices of the Homeless
It began as a a New Year’s resolution: “Do something each day that takes you out of your comfort zone.” Interacting with people living on the streets was at the top of that list. Like many of us who reside in proper homes, I preferred to look away.
But for more than a year, I listened to homeless people — their stories, their thoughts, their dreams. Report from the Street: Voices of the Homeless, an 8-monologue, 32-page chapbook, is the culmination of those difficult but ultimately rewarding interactions.
A cast of stellar Los Angeles actors performs the monologues tonight (April 15) in Hollywood. Admission is free. Donations benefit The Center, a nonprofit homeless services provider.
