STANDING IN THE GAP is a new theatrical production that shares the insights, courage and talents of inner-city men and women.  In the gap between skid row reality and the real estate developers vision for a revitalized downtown stand the low income, often homeless men and women who for decades have relied on the safety net provided by the flop houses and streets of downtown LA.  In spite of attempts to build them out of existence, these men and women are still here and in “Standing in the Gap” they tell their stories.  Monologues, comedic scenes, and songs weave together to create a kaleidoscope of life in the other downtown.  In January 2009, CoA and U.P. joined forces to create a Theater Workshop for low-income residents of downtown.  These workshops provide a safe space to foster artistic expression for those unaccustomed to having this opportunity.   From these workshops a new theatrical ensemble was borne and their untapped talent created the theatrical pieces that make up “Standing in the Gap”
