What are the healing stories that we need to hear now?

Join us for the first public screening of the Theater of Witness film Walk in My Shoes, based on the production created and performed by Philadelphia police and people in communities of color. The original performance features the performers’ true stories of how historical racism, poverty, trauma, inequality, safety, injustice and heroism intersect in the lives of both police and community members. Performed by the people themselves, this provocative film moves the heart as well as the mind. Watch the trailer for Walk In My Shoes.

Following the film, producers Police Inspector Altovise Love-Craighead and Theater of Witness Artistic Director Teya Sepinuck, as well as the performers, will speak about the deep connections they made as they listened and created this historic production together.


Theater of Witness brings people together across divides of difference to bear witness to the beauty of meaningful engagement, cultivate empathy and truly listen to the stories of people we’ve never heard before. Without shying away from the painful wounds of our society, Theater of Witness offers a new story-- one that taps into the spirit of love and connection between us all.
