SPADES: A Book Without a Cover

street_people_thumb.jpgOn Saturday November 17 at The Camel – Richmond’s New Social Oasis, 1621 W. Broad Street, will open its doors at 7:30 pm for this open and honest dialogue to provide the audience with a brief glimpse into the circumstances and complex issues surrounding homelessness. It promotes a better understanding of the difficulties of living on the streets with an active and challenging psychodrama.

SPADES is a co-authored dramatic work conceived and directed by Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates, and is a collection of the life stories and journeys of the people who live on the streets and shelters of our community. SPADES uncovers the reality of how closely the lives of the homeless intersects with the lives we all live everyday.

Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates is a playwright, director, actor, poet, writer and teacher. She has appeared on Broadway and in both National and International Touring Companies. The play’s producing co-collaborator, Marc Taylor, MA, Ed.S, LPC, is a mental health clinician on the staff of Daily Planet.

Suggested donations are $10 per person to benefit The Daily Planet. To purchase tickets, visit The Daily Planet and click “Donate” – indicate # of tickets in the Comments section. Proceeds benefit the Daily Planet.


This is a followup to the previous post announcing the Homelessness Awareness Week. Questions? I would recommend directing them to Mary Anne Conmy (Assistant Director of Development & External Affairs) at 804-783-2505, ext. 241.
