Description:
This gripping drama, with moments of surprising humor, was inspired by playwright Jim Reyland's experiences as a volunteer for Nashville's Room In The Inn and his longtime relationship with a homeless man. An absorbing story unfolds as trust and friendship build between Mark, a business executive, and Johnny, who lives on the streets. Students gain genuine insight into the complicated circumstances which can lead to homelessness, including addiction and mental illness. Following its Nashville premiere, the play began touring to high schools nationwide.
