I would like to say a huge thank-you to Worthing Theatres.
On Saturday, February 21, they put on a play called Mr Sole Abode at the Connaught Studio. They invited local people who work with the homeless and insecurely housed to secure tickets for the event at a reduced rate. For the clients of Worthing Churches Homeless Projects, they also offered some free tickets and a hot meal.
A group of 30 clients and staff attended the performance. It was a day in the life of a person who was homeless, detailing his life, how he had got to where he was and how he saw the world.
It was based on the true story of a world- renowned architect who became homeless following a breakdown, inspired by Ben Okri’s award-winning novel, The Famished Road, and David Bohm’s writings on the nature of reality. Leo Kay created this show in 2006.
In this unique redevelopment, multi-instrumentalist Daniel Marcus Clark joined Leo on stage to create a magical soundscape.
This piece of gripping theatre examined the society we live in, all through one man’s plight and the power of imagination.
It was a wonderful evening.
We are very grateful to Worthing Theatres for giving our clients the opportunity to attend the play and have a lovely hot meal cooked for them and served to them, many of the clients would be unable to afford to do either of these things normally.
