“A Mile in My Shoes” is a solo show written and performed by veteran actor Kathryn Taylor Smith. In this 90 minute Poetic Dramedy (clever mix of poetry, drama & comedy) Kathryn depicts 12 characters based on research and personal interviews with past and present members of the homeless community (real & created) as well as those who advocate for them. Have you ever past a homeless person on the street and wondered, How did they get that way, what did they do before they were homeless, what do they do all day on the streets, is it safe for women and children, what can I do to help, what are they going to do with the money, food or clothes that I just gave them, why won’t they just go to a shelter, why can’t they just get a job, why won’t the city feed or house all the homeless. If you’ve ever asked these questions then A Mile in My Shoes is a must see show for you. This socially conscious and social relevant piece speaks to the audience from a raw, uncensored, unapologetic perspective of a Navy veteran, a Grammy award winning singer, an precarious toddler, an elderly couple, a lesbian teen, A Harvard graduate, a single mom of 3 displaced by Hurricane Harvey, a barber, a photographer, a news reporter, the owner of a food bank and you. It will make you laugh and cry but most of all it will make think. It will compel you to do more, to be better & to act kinder; but not because they are homeless, simply because they are human and “There but for the grace of God go I.”
