Join us for a staged reading of the play Sheltered written by local playwright Catherine Wiley. The play takes place in temporary homeless shelter for women in Denver and unfolds over a single day, with choral interludes by different homeless women illustrating the complexities of their lives. One of the main characters, Martha, volunteers as a way of searching for her mother, who has moved in and out of addiction and homelessness for much of Martha’s life. With the help of Cassie and Tiffany, Martha reconnects with her mother, Helen, in an effort to bring her home. They discuss and debate the origins of their predicament, the realities of living on the receiving end of charity, and their hopes for the future. Directed by Kate Folkins and taking place by special arrangement with Red Line Contemporary Art Gallery on November 19 at 7pm.
