Making its world premiere in Atlanta this June, Life in the Park is a new work of genius in the genre of musical plays. It’s the timely story of Humphrey and Constance (a homeless man and woman) and the people they encounter in their lives as they endure another winter in a city park.
Audiences will experience an emotion‐filled journey from laughter to heartfelt moments, the experience of life in the park. Opening June 3 at the 14th Street Playhouse, Life in the Park runs through June 26 with a possible extension until July17.
Written by Gary W. Heath and directed by Atlanta native Allen Worthy, Life in the Park offers audiences an up‐close personal look into homelessness not seen in the typical representation of this all‐too‐possible condition. Heath has taken the situation of the two main characters and mixed it with music to expose the inner emotions of Humphrey, Constance and their acquaintances.
Taking place during one day, this story is of every man in any unexpected or unavoidable condition that could affect any individual in his or her lifetime. The show is highly theatrical even as it entertains with remarkable musical numbers.
Life in the Park was showcased to the public in a professional staged reading under the Actors Equity Backers Audition Code at the famed Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, California with extremely positive response from the audience. Director Worthy is thrilled to debut the production in front of an Atlanta audience. He graduated from North Atlanta High School Center for the Arts before moving to New York City to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and pursue a career in theatre. Heath and Worthy previously partnered on Ginger and ME and Speakeasy.
Following its Atlanta run, Life in the Park will head to San Diego in August.
