Taking a STAND: Drama performance benefiting Room in the Inn
Thursday, November 2 (7:30-9 PM)
First Presbyterian Church of Asheville, sanctuary
Nashville playwright and homeless advocate Jim Reyland brings his play, STAND, to Asheville as a benefit for Room in the Inn, a program of Homeward Bound of WNC. Reyland says that STAND serves as a punch to the heart, a call to action, and the beginning of a difficult conversation about the realities of addiction and life on the streets. For more than 25 years, Jim Reyland, creator of the play, has worked as a volunteer for Nashville’s Room in the Inn.
Proceeds from the Nov. 2 performance will benefit Homeward Bound’s Room in the Inn Program and will be held in the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church Asheville. Room in the Inn partners with local faith communities to provide shelter for up to twelve women each night of the week as they wait for permanent housing.
