This is Me: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

A staged reading of This Is Me: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow will be performed by local professional actors, for the first time at Ferguson Youth Inititiative, on June 9th, 2019. The project is a collaboration between the 16-to-20-year-old residents of Marygrove Children’s Home, a therapeutic residence in Florissant, MO and YourWords STL, a St. Louis based non-profit that uses tutoring, creative writing workshops and collaborative workshops to amplify the voices of St. Louis youth. The young writers spent a semester creating personal narratives and poetry that reflect on their past, present, and future. They will have the opportunity to see the culmination of their work in the performance of their writing by professional actors, under the direction of local director, Kyle Kranes. This event follow’s last Spring’s Unheard Voices, which was the first collaborative project of this nature involving writers of Marygrove and actors from the local and regional scene.
