MONDAY NIGHT DRAMAS

October1st at 7:00pm


Throwaway Kids by Isaac Gomez, Resident Playwright 

The sun is hot hot hot as the self-proclaimed Throwaway Kids hop trains and ride Texas skies, bouncing city to city, finding home wherever they lie their heads. But when newcomer Genesis joins this ragtag group of homeless youth, their entire existence is shaken as they are forced to reconcile with the haunted pasts that keep them there. Throwaway Kids is an exploration of power and control when adults aren’t around to exercise it.
