To bring attention to the issues of homelessness and addiction, US AND THEM is touring Canadian communities in 2017. So far, at every show, the audience response is the same — they are deeply moved. People leave the theatre and typically never look at a homeless person the same way again.
The Canadian tour of US AND THEM will continue this fall and includes an exclusive screening on Parliament Hill for all of Canada’s MPs on September 26. The event is being hosted by the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. This show at the Mayfair Theatre on September 28 is the premiere of Us and Them in Ottawa. The screening is presented by the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa to support US AND THEM’s national efforts to raise awareness about homelessness and addiction through a compassionate lens. At a time when Canada is in the midst of both a housing and opioid crisis, this film has never been more relevant.
LOGLINE: “Ten years in the making, a woman sets out to help four homeless people but they end up helping her.”
