Cleveland Public Theatre’s Y-Haven Theatre Project, now in its 21st year, gives a voice to a community that is mostly voiceless: homeless men dealing with substance abuse and mental health issues. They’re frequently talked ABOUT, but Y-Haven, a partnership with the Great Cleveland YMCA, lets them speak for themselves in theatrical pieces they write and perform based on their own experiences.
The latest piece is called Father’s Watch, created by a dozen participants in the Y’s Y-Haven program. It revolves around a young man who begins to delve into who his father really is and what that says about his own identity.
It will be performed for one weekend at CPT, followed by more performances in the community. It’s free, with a suggested donation of $5. A benefit performance Sat 11/9 is $75 and includes a pre-show reception.
