One out of every 54 homes in America received a foreclosure notice in 2008. Award winning playwright and author of "Love in the Time of Foreclosure," Stephanie Alison Walker, takes audiences on a deeply personal journey through recent history as she shines a light on three out of the millions of stories of loss. A young couple faces eviction from the dream house they stretched to buy; an elderly widow falls prey to a reverse mortgage scheme, and a minister of the prosperity gospel must face the flock shes led astray. American Home takes an unflinching look at the impossible choices people make when faced with losing everything, and, ultimately, celebrates the powerful resilience of community and the human spirit.
Reading begins at 7p followed by a short discussion of the play.
