At the Ferguson Youth Initiative, on April 28th, PRIME Theater, Marygrove Children’s Home and YourWords STL present a workshop performance of Unheard Voices: You Don’t Know My Story. Local Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Daniel Blake Smith, casts a light on the real-life stories of the young men who reside at Marygrove Children’s Home, in Florissant, Missouri. Smith skillfully interweaves the narratives, poetry, and song lyrics written by the 16 to 20-year-olds, who are preparing to live on their own. With moving accuracy, the actors of PRIME Theater breathe life into their honest and bravely written words. A live Q and A with the young men of Marygrove will follow the performance.
The event will be free but seating is limited, so please reserve your ticket.
