A colorful cast of characters provide an “in house” view of those in need of support, those offering the support, and how difficult it can be to tell the difference! Please come and meet playwright David Hinkle, listen to a fresh reading of his First Stage play, and offer your insights to David as he prepares to take “next steps” with The Dispossessed.
