Gesher Human Services and Matrix Theatre Present ‘The Open Door’ Theatrical Experience
Gesher Human Services and Detroit’s Matrix Theatre Company are proud to have collaborated on a new three-act theatrical experience called The Open Door, which will be held at the Matrix Theater (2730 Bagley Street, Detroit) on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 15, at 3 p.m., with tickets costing $18.
The readings and poetry are written by Gregory Kiewiet, a talented author, who has experienced barriers to opportunities because of having an illness. He attends Gesher’s Lois and Milton Y. Zussman Activity Center (known as Clubhouse) in Southfield. Clubhouse provides enrichment, educational and employment opportunities for people living with mental illnesses. Part of that enrichment program is Creative Expressions, which gives participants opportunities in the arts, everything from photography, painting and sculpture to music, singing classes and, in this case, theater writing.
