The workshops and play were inspired by a mural commissioned by the Trust for the Harbor Light Center. Artist Bianca Pettis used the mural to amplify the voices of Harbor Light residents by having conversations with them to inspire her artwork and create a sense of community and belonging. Now, you can see those stories come to life in an original theatre piece at 900 Hennepin.
“A big theme that has stood out for me is homeless people tend to feel alone,” says Stories from the Book of Harbor Light playwright Caroline Mannheimer. “They almost all crave community, fellowship. Sometimes all a person needs is for another to listen to their story.”
