Please Don’t Call Me Homeless … I Don’t Call You Homed’ is a Play presented by Street Voice Council Players, Catholic Action Center and Actors Guild of Lexington. The play portrays the life of people who do not have homes. The characters wake up early on the streets, guessing what time it is and facing a long day. One man, an alcoholic, talks about gathering enough cans to get money for beer. Another plans to get food, and another talks about getting a nap at the library. Written by Jeff Gross, a University of Kentucky doctoral candidate, the play is based on interviews with more than two dozen Lexingtonians who have been homeless. “We hope it will be a voice for the homeless people, to show they’re more than just a face you pass by,” says Joe Shuman of the Street Voice Council.
