Devising Hope

An intergenerational theatre program in partnership with Street Sense Media and Educational Theatre Company

Devising Hope brings together men and women experiencing homelessness and local high school students to collaborate on a devised theatre piece. Through the course of the project, Devising Hope participants build connections and camaraderie through theatre games and thematic explorations of classic and contemporary plays. In seeking to build a common understanding of the human experience, Devising Hope participants share personal narratives that inspire an original theatre piece, performed for a public audience.
