New York Theatre Workshop presents Light Raise the Roof, the world premiere of a play by Kia Corthron, directed by Michael John Garces. Through an energetic man named Cole and his battle to provide homes for those surviving a freezing winter on the streets, playwright Corthron humanizes the pervasive and multifaceted social problem of homelessness. As Cole struggles against everything from police raids on homesteaders' settlements to the allure of substance abuse in order to fulfill his promise of shelter for his dispossessed friends Zekie, Bebbie, Arnell, Em, and Mai, Corthron goes beyond abstract numbers and trends, straight into the realm of human tragedy.
