Theater for the Homeless

I received this email today. If anyone would like to join me, I am off work this weekend and would love company.

The Factory Theatre in association with Holland Productions presents...
THE HALFWAY HOUSE CLUB by, Philana Gnatowski

....what happens to the broken hearted? For four mismatched strangers seeking mending, a halfway house promising a 14-step program provides hope. Through the walls that these cupid's rejects create and break in their one room sanctuary, an exploration of individual failures at love and how to reconnect through their flaws emerges. December 18 @ 8pm December 19th @ 8pm December 20th @ 2pm & 8pm


Tickets available now at:

Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program has been managing the broken hearts and other physical ailments of Boston's homeless since 1985. They provide medical, mental health, and dental services to 11,000 homeless men, women, and children a year at over 80 different sites around Boston with clinics in the city's homeless shelters and three of its major hospitals. This summer, they moved into their new home Jean Yawkey Place, located a half mile from the Factory Theatre next to Boston Medical Center, and here they run their own halfway house for broken hearts, the Barbara McInnis House. The Barbara McInnis House is an inpatient medical facility with 104 beds that provides short-term medical and recuperative services for homeless people far too ill for life in shelters but not sick enough to warrant a hospital stay. In this way, the Barbara McInnis serves as a literal halfway house, a house for homeless persons halfway between the shelters or streets and the hospital.
