Note from the Playwright: I wrote this piece because I've often wondered why some people ended up on the street and it wasn't until it happened to my brother that I realized that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes it's out of anyone's control. I wanted the world to realize that homeless people are people too and sometimes a little kindness is all the world needs.
