Streetheart is a play that centres the voices of one of the most vulnerable and marginalized groups of people in every city - the homeless. Many of our ideas about homelessness come from exploitive media coverage that rarely celebrates the beauty of the humans who ask for your help on the street, their right to safety and dignity and their beautiful senses of humour. Playwright Sarah Gartshore knows that poverty is violence and is thankful to the extraordinary and resilient people who were able to wade through their struggles with that violence to share their experiences and wisdoms with her during the creation of Streetheart. Indigenous Peoples make up a disproportionate amount of community members living on the streets in every Canadian city and Streetheart explores some of the many complex reasons for that, while celebrating the heart of each individual character as they explore their relationships to each other and to you.
