Is almost upon us…
Monday 7th August at 8.30pm to be precise.
Homeless Comforts is a project like nothing I’ve ever done before or maybe even will get close to again.
From when I first had the idea of highlighting the plight of the homeless men and women on our streets, I never once imagined how much I would learn, the wonderful people I would meet, who not only do such a superb job giving up their time to help the vulnerable of our society but have enriched me as a human being.
We all witness homelessness, and to be fair most of us walk past without a thought for those in that position.
Through observing, listening and offering kindness it’s amazing what can be achieved.
I’m so grateful to Liz and Darren Shaw, who run #OneBigFamily-HelpingTheHomeless in Kent, London and Yorkshire, for all the knowledge they have given me, the support when I first spoke of getting involved and the humility I have found within myself.
Homeless Comforts is as much a testament to them both and their wonderful volunteers as it is a piece of real life encapsulated for the stage – to provoke thought, feeling and empathy.
We run 7th – 9th August, 8.30pm at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden
