Top-Tier Play Will Use Material Obtained From Service Interviews With Homeless
New York, New York: May 7, 2015 – “Roughly Speaking: Voices From The Soup Kitchen,” is a forthcoming investigative theater piece which captures the many hues and layers of the life of those who’ve fallen into homelessness.
The volunteers gathered data from their shared encounters at St. Francis Xavier Mission’s Welcome Table, which serves between 900-1600 hot meals weekly.
There is a raw and poignant truth about the homeless. They each have a story detailing how they got where they are. A change of fortune may have landed them in this situation.
There are stories within stories. In New York City alone, records reveal that 60,000 people are homeless on a daily basis. In this populous city, as well as other points on the globe, the homeless often become invisible to some, an inconvenient reality to others and a source of embarrassment to others still.
