Streets Apart by Jackie Lines
A new and ground-breaking play, Streets Apart deals with the growing crisis of 21st Century homelessness.
How can it happen in a wealthy country like ours?
This brilliant new contemporary script explores the moving struggles of homelessness and the uphill challenge of surviving another day.
What are the issues behind homelessness and how do those less fortunate end up on a downward spiral in life?
In a heartbeat everything could change and this becomes your destiny.
The visceral story follows the journey of two young vulnerable people living in a tent and lost to the world and themselves. Set on the dark and threatening streets and in the safety of a Day Centre, their stories throw light on a crisis in society that is rarely understood.
Streets Apart brings a powerful insight into homeless through innovative and immersive theatre. Blazing with tension, energy and passion, this inspirational play explores the fragility of life.
And how lives can change when a community comes together.
An ideal production for students looking to address contemporary issues in society. The play also highlights for students the need for a sound financial footing in life as rents increase and affordable housing becomes scarce.
