ARTS GARAGE in Delray Beach to Present Thought-Provoking A MILE IN MY SHOES, November 5
November 5 (Sunday) at 7 pm
A Mile in My Shoes
Written by and starring Kathryn Taylor Smith
Presented in collaboration with the Delray Beach Initiative to End Homelessness, A Mile in My Shoes is a mix of poetry, drama and comedy in "consciousness raising theatre," inspired by the playwright's research and personal interviews with past and present members of the homeless community in LA, as well as those who advocate for them
Masterfully directed by Zadia Ife, the one-woman play follows "Ester", an omniscient shoe whisperer as she walks through a day in her life on Skid Row connecting with a transgender teen, a young mom, a mentally ill substance abuser, a high school valedictorian, a police officer, and a variety of concerned citizens at a city council meeting.
Raw, uncensored, and unapologetic, A Mile in MY Shoes compels people to do more, do better, and act kinder to the homeless, all under the rubric of "There but for the grace of God, go I."
+ During the show, guests are encouraged to bring shoes and toiletry items that not only serve as set pieces for the show but are later donated to the homeless. In addition, audience members are encouraged to bring a donation of NEW men's underwear to be collected that night by the InterFaith Committee.
+ The performance will be followed by a brief presentation from and Q&A with Ariana Cianco, Service Population Advocate for the Delray Beach Police Department; Ezra Krieg, Chair of the Delray Beach Initiative to End Homelessness;
+ Relevant community service organizations will have information tables set-up in Arts Garage that evening.
