What would you do if you were evicted? Move into your car? Couch surf? Just give up?
How would you change your clothes? How would you cook your food or watch TV or get a job? Where would you go to the bathroom? How would you face the people walking by who avoid you and never make eye contact?
How would you keep your self-respect in the eyes of your children if you lost everything?
“Feral”, an original theatrical work by Portland playwright Bruce A. Hostetler, highlights the stories of individuals and families who struggle to retain their self-identity and humanity in the face of the impersonal generalizations of housed society. “Feral” questions the common assumption that people experiencing homelessness are driven to fulfill basic needs in any way possible. The project also seeks to empower those who are experiencing homelessness by providing a medium to tell their stories.
Directed by Asae Dean and presented under the auspices of the Portland Area Theatre Alliance’s Fertile Ground festival of new works, this production of was made possible by grants from the Regional Arts and Culture Council and the Kinsman Foundation, as well as generous support from Portland area donors.
