LYMAN

Company: LYMAN The Play, produced by John Dameron

Tickets: $20

DESCRIPTION:

LYMAN is a 2-act play set in a multi-universe. It centers on the life of Lyman Liri, a piano prodigy and Vietnam veteran who becomes homeless in our current universe. Each scene is a different destiny of Lyman based on the choices he makes at universal points in his life. Guest-starring Lou Beatty Jr. (Betty White's “Off Their Rockers”).

COMPANY STATEMENT:

LYMAN demonstrates how each of us is only one choice away from being homeless ourselves. It encourages audiences to see their own reflection in the face of every homeless person they meet and, hopefully, inspires them to make a difference.

"If we could accept the truth that all homeless people are capable of being heroes and all people are capable of being homeless, then perhaps homelessness could once and for all be solved."

- Anne Johnstonbrown
