A PLAY BY LIVIU MONSTED
Shown at The Chippen Street Theatre
DIRECTED BY LIVIU MONSTED
PRODUCED BY ABE BASTOLI & LIVIU MONSTED
A hard-hitting, confronting commentary on homelessness, social responsibility and the harsh reality of living on the street.
STREET is a harsh and revealing look into the lives of two young people trying to survive on the streets day to day.
For Foster and Miriam, being alone and unseen is the norm, that is, until they're unexpectedly confronted by two people who are seemingly new to the cruel reality of living on the street.

"Writer and director Liviu Monsted presents to the audience a grim picture of the plight of young people living on the street. It is not so much a story of why or how they ended up homeless, nor does it present a neat solution to their situation, rather it raises our consciousness and asks us to look more closely at those living on the streets."
“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.” -Weekend Notes
