About the Event

This original play explores the challenges homeless women encounter, bringing perspective, and bridging the divide between those with places they can call home and those without. The performance, which previewed in Humboldt County in 2018, grew out of a year of research including audio interviews, story circles, visits with homeless women, conversations with advocates, volunteers, social services, police, elected officials and community members. Cast members have included those who are currently homeless and those who have had that devastating experience. The performance is 90-minutes long, with one intermission.

“A Woman’s Place is in Her Home” offers meaningful information and “real stories.” It touches hearts, impacts opinions and opens minds to a growing social epidemic. One audience member commented, “The play has been instrumental in pulling back the ‘curtain of mystery’ and bias surrounding homelessness and is paving the way for empathy and understanding.” 

The play will be performed at the Bell Memorial Union auditorium. Tickets are $20 in advance at EventBrite, or $25 at the door, cash or check. Free for students with Student ID.

All proceeds benefit 6th Street Center for Youth, Chico Housing Action Team, and The Arcata Playhouse.
