Script Details

***Please provide a sample in order to audition. 
Keith set out from Minneapolis in his late teens, in search of warmth and
whatever came next. He moved to Albuquerque and looked for employment, but
not too intently.

At first he stayed in seedy motels and public shelters, but eventually
slept on the streets, covering himself with cardboard and rags when cold,
and nothing at all when not. Alcohol and drugs became a regular part of his
life, although he rarely scored enough to stay high for any period of time.
At 28, he had no work résumé and no legitimate job skills. Panhandling and
petty larceny kept him alive. All of his earthly possessions could fit into
the pockets of his pants.

Darryl was 43 and did have a résumé. He earned a B.S. in accounting from an
unsung college near Cleveland, and then worked for a while in a bank. That’s
where he met Bonnie. They married after a brief courtship.

An offer from a friend to be the bookkeeper at a real estate office in
Raleigh appeared to be a better opportunity, so they moved there with one
child and one on the way. The job worked out; the marriage didn’t. Bonnie
left and moved back to Ohio with the kids. He plodded along in North
Carolina until the bottom fell out of the real estate market and he was let

Unemployment couldn’t cover alimony, child support, a mortgage, and his
personal expenses. He lost his battles with the finance company and with
depression. The house went back to the bank and Darryl went to a homeless

Although they had never met, Keith and Darryl were soon to have a common
experience: They both learned about Housing First—a government-funded
concept that puts homeless people in houses with the philosophy that once
someone is in stable housing, all of life’s other issues have a better
chance of getting worked out.

Without an income and with a history of substance abuse, Keith qualified for
a free residence under the Shelter Plus Care Program, managed by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development. He was given the keys to an
apartment and requested to see a substance-abuse counselor weekly. The
counselor had an unmanageable caseload. He and Keith met once.
