Y-Haven Theatre Project
About the show: On the surface, Eddie lives a normal life. He runs a local electronics store, provides for his mother and younger brother, and takes one day at a time. But the voices in Eddie’s head are tearing him apart. And when back-door criminal activity puts him in danger, and a neighborhood thug offers a new opportunity, Eddie must decide if it’s time to reinvent himself or resurrect an old self that knows how to survive.
