Homelessness on Stage

Renowned playwright Oscar Wilde once said, “I regard the theater as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” Amongst the issues that theatre addresses, homelessness seems to be recurring throughout various works. However, its various depictions on stage not only give audiences an entertaining experience but also leaves them with alternative perspectives on the issue as a whole, for better or worse.
