A powerful play based on the harsh reality of being homeless


Street is a confronting and hard-hitting commentary on homelessness and social responsibility. The play is about the harsh reality of living on the street. It presents a revealing look into the lives of young people trying to survive on the streets each day.

The play begins with seeing two people sleeping on the 'street' with one pillow and one blanket between them. The scene quickly becomes evident; they are homeless and a feeling of sadness creeps up.

For Foster and Miriam, being alone and unseen is the norm, till one day something unexpected occurs. They are confronted by two people who "appear" to be new to the cruel reality of living on the street.

As the performance progresses, you can see into the cruel, atrocious world where human beings are fighting each day for survival. The play put this into perspective on how society "forgets" and "neglects" the homeless, as many of us do not know their stories, their struggles, their demons.

The play hits you hard and showcases deep emotions, thankfully, there are moments of humour which lightens the mood.

The cast did a fantastic job and executed the performance brilliantly.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the Box Office.

This theatre production is part of the Sydney Fringe Festival.
