What does it mean to choose change, growth, and healing? Crossroads to Hope: Scenes of Decision is a series of short scenes, monologues, and poems that share the experiences and imagination of the residents of Y-Haven as they interrogate their pasts, meditate on their present, and dream of their future selves. Presented in a virtual setting, this performance is broadcast directly from the rooms of Y-Haven with an authenticity and sense of home.

The Y-Haven Theatre Project is a 22-year partnership between Cleveland Public Theatre and Y-Haven, a transitional housing and treatment facility for formerly homeless individuals. CPT collaborates with the clients of Y-Haven to create an original theatre production that shares powerful stories of recovery and personal triumph.
