HOMEFREE is feauted in AMERICAN THEATRE MAGAZINE!
"LOS ANGELES: Visitors to Ashland, Ore., may come away with strong impressions of the town’s world-class Shakespeare festival or of lovely, verdant hikes in Lithia Park. If they spend any time on the streets of the town, though, they’re also likely to have a memorable encounter with Aaron the Goat Man, a homeless philosopher often glimpsed around town with at least one hooved animal in tow. Aaron is the unofficial mayor of a thriving subculture of ex-hippies and wanderers in the region who “might say they’re ‘home-free’ as opposed to homeless,” explained playwright Lisa Loomer, the author of Living Out and Distracted. Loomer’s new play Homefree takes its title from that optimistic-sounding phrase, and who based a pivotal character on Ashland’s thoughtful goat guru. The play debuts at the Road Theatre in North Hollywood and runs Sept. 15-Nov. 8, under Michael Matthews’s direction."
