Cleveland Public Theatre & Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority Present ROAD TO HOPE

Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) is proud to announce ROAD TO HOPE at OUTHWAITE COMMUNITY HOMES, a free performing arts event celebrating hope, honoring Cleveland's leadership role in areas of social justice and equity, addressing modern day struggles for freedom and justice, and rejoicing in Outhwaite Homes' historical community center and its resident services - a prelude to Cleveland Public Theatre's fourth annual Station Hope celebration on April 29 at St. John's Episcopal Church, Cleveland's first authenticated Underground Railroad site.

ROAD TO HOPE at OUTHWAITE HOMES is presented in a partnership with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) and will feature theatre, spoken word, music and dance created by Northeast Ohio artists. Outhwaite Home's Brick City Theatre youth ensemble and Family Collective will perform their original play, The Mayor, The Brother, The Grandmas and The Wise People of Outhwaite Homes, inspired by the lives and legacy of Louis and Carl B. Stokes, raised at Outhwaite Homes in the 1940's. ROAD TO HOPE will be a vibrant celebration of community, hope, history and Cleveland's connection to social justice issues of the past and present.

ROAD TO HOPE features performances by CPT's Brick City Theatre, Inlet Dance Theatre, Robin Pease & Kulture Kids, Cliff Holt, Kalim Hill, Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator, Hue People and CMHA Voices. ROAD TO HOPE is proudly presented in conjunction with the yearlong Stokes commemoration project, honoring the legacies of Mayor Carl B. Stokes and Congressman Louis Stokes. Learn more at
