The Y-Haven Theatre Project is a 21-year partnership between Cleveland Public Theatre and Y-Haven, a branch of the Greater Cleveland YMCA. Y-Haven is a transitional housing facility for formerly homeless men recovering from substance abuse and mental health challenges. Every year, CPT collaborates with the clients of Y-Haven to create an original theatre production, performed by the men and based on their life stories. Father’s Watch was developed under the guidance of CPT Education Manager Adam Seeholzer, Assistant Director Leonard Goff, and CPT Premiere Fellow Les Hunter. The one-weekend production at CPT is followed by free performances in the community.
