Home/Less/Mess premieres at the Stage House Theatre

Kamloops – Home/Less/Mess is a stage production aimed at bringing stories of homelessness out of the darkness. This live performance is written and performed by people from Kamloops who have experienced homelessness. A cast of four men and two women has been working with TRU theatre professors to create a production to tell their stories and inspire change.

This production is the result of almost two years of research, collaboration and collective creation, and provides a venue for people who have experienced homelessness to tell their own stories. Partners in the project include the Homelessness Action Plan, TRU, United Way, the City of Kamloops, White Buffalo Aboriginal and Metis Health Society, ASK Wellness, the Kamloops and District Arts Council, Interior Community Services and the Elizabeth Fry Society.

Tickets are $20 and are available at www.kamloopslive.ca or at the door. Proceeds support the people involved in the play. Donations are also welcome.
