Y-Haven Theatre Project

For the thirteenth year in a row, CPT, Cleveland's leading alternative theatre, and Y-Haven, YMCA's transitional housing center for homeless men in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, have collaborated to create this original performance. CPT Artists work with residents of Y-Haven to create an original play performed by the residents and based on their personal experiences. This year's production is guided by CPT Teaching Artists Adam Seeholzer and Darius Stubbs.

About the play: Larry just wants to see his son. But the court, his ex-wife and the boy's new father keep getting in his way. Driven by his troubled past, Larry's mission is to see his son, no matter the cost. As he struggles to overcome every obstacle, Larry may be forgetting the largest obstacle of all: himself. Prove Yourself is a riveting story about parenthood and the challenges people face when coming to terms with themselves, their past mistakes and their dreams for the future.

An audience favorite year after year, the CPT/Y-Haven Theatre Project offers candid insight into important issues of our society and gives real hope for growth and change. Audiences are continually blown away by the poignant and moving stories presented by this powerful collaboration.
