AboutThis story is not about neglect, physical abuse, addiction, or mental health. This is a story about how societal stereotypes affect marginalized youth. Hi, My Name is Kaity tells the story of one homeless teen’s journey through interactions with her physical environment, homeless peers, school classmates and various adults in positions of authority. This story attempts to explore how identifying as homeless can further marginalize youth, within a system that relies heavily upon adults to advocate on their behalf.
Playwright’s Word"When you are homeless, you are invisible and you exist on the fringe of society—even as a youth. Hi, My Name is Kaity speaks directly to the individuals that are in the midst of feeling abandoned or misunderstood, often while processing mental, emotional andphysical trauma. Kaity is one voice."
