Do you know what it’s like to be homeless?

Donald Falconer


This work screams out and cries tears for the homeless in a series of brutal events and surreal dreams, exploring the vicious cycle of addiction through the life of three vivid and interesting characters (a drug addict, an alcoholic and a prostitute) living on the streets of Glasgow. The words dig deep under the skin to expose the demons inside their heads. I feel this work is vitally important and each character sheds a light on a part of the human condition that is too often ignored by today’s society with its miserable consequences and ultimate tragedy.
