Y-Haven Theatre Project picture 2Y-Haven Theatre Project is a program for residents of Y-Haven, a transitional housing facility for homeless men recovering from substance abuse and mental health challenges. Since 1998, CPT and Y-Haven, a branch of the Greater Cleveland YMCA, have annually collaborated to create an original theatre production, performed by the men and based on their life stories. This life-changing, arts-based program teaches performing arts and technical aspects of theatre, while addressing critical interpersonal, personal and job-related skills. Every year, the original work is presented to enthusiastic full houses at CPT, followed by a community-wide tour. The Y-Haven Theatre Project supports newly learned skills for sober and independent living and honors the unique and important perspective men in recovery bring to the Cleveland community.
