Weather and circumstance bring together Mikey, Snake, Miss Candace, Motor, Mac and Julie - all of whom are on the street for different reasons, here now to navigate their relationships, dreams and often, survival. 


March 8 at 11:00 a.m.

This presentation of rain falls special on me will be a performed as a reading. There are no paid tickets for this event.
