It was role-reversal at the Re-create Cafe with the goals of educating and entertaining.
The 3-day performance wrapped up Monday night.
Each performer tells someone else's story rather than their own. The idea is that someone who is homeless, or who has been, tells the story of someone who has never been homeless and vice versa. Therefore, all the performers are "walking in someone else's shoes."
Tenika Dye, play director, "It doesn't matter if people are homeless or not, these are real stories from real peopleand that's the most important thing we're telling stories that belong right here in Chattanooga right here with our citizens."
The Salvation Army has put on similar performances in the past. They say it does so well, they plan to have more "Walk in My Shoes" events in the future.
