For Foster and Miriam, being alone and unseen is the norm, that is, until they're confronted by two people who are seemingly new to the cruel reality of living on the street.

STREET is a hard-hitting, confronting commentary on homelessness and social responsibility.

The play was written as a response to the increasing homeless population in Sydney's CBD and has been performed as a charity show for "Youth Off The Street".

"In STREET writer and director Liviu Monsted presents to the audience a grim picture of the plight of young people living on the street. It is not so much a story of why or how they ended up homeless, nor does it present a neat solution to their situation, rather it raises our consciousness and asks us to look more closely at those living on the streets."

- Stage Whispers

“As the performance progresses, you can see into the cruel, atrocious world where human beings are fighting each day for survival. The play put this into perspective on how society "forgets" and "neglects" the homeless, as many of us do not know their stories, their struggles, their demons."

"The play hits you hard and showcases deep emotions, thankfully, there are moments of humour which lightens the mood."

-Weekend Notes

"More Australians need to hear and discuss the fully intense portrayal about the reality and possible solutions to homelessness. Controversial topic, all actors kept their energy levels high and kept the curiosity and anticipation going for each performance."

- Chris Barry, Skidrow Community Radio
