Stories from the Streets

Stories from the Streets

A performance of monologues, music, and stories

“Terminal Hope”—a song featured in Stories from the Streets: Going Home.

sfts-mary-color-400Bring Emmaus to your school, church, organization, or even your home with Stories from the Streets. The full program consists of approximately one hour of stories of men involved in survival prostitution, communicated through dramatic monologue, storytelling, and music. An alternate sermon-length version appropriate for a chapel or Sunday morning service is also available.

The original Stories from the Streets helped audiences get to know the men of Emmaus—men who, on the surface, seem so “other,” but whose stories offer a way to understand them through the desires, struggles, and experiences we all have in common. This new iteration, Stories from the Streets: Going Home, is similarly engaging and insightful, but explores the lives of the men of Emmaus through one of the things we all share, and perhaps fear: death. While the program memorializes the men of Emmaus who have died, it is also an exploration of the effects of loss, and an expression of the longing we all have to find our true home.

Stories from the Streets is appropriate for high school and older audiences. To inquire, please email
