"Angel in the Alley" written by Percy W. Thomas is a play that weaves reality and fantasy with spiritual powers.
Three homeless men find themselves entrapped in street culture from different places in time. From a place of powerlessness, each of them must find ways of coping. In the face of hardships on the streets, they must come to grips with the fact their destiny is their choice. The character Oldman is a feisty individual who is searching for meaning in his life as a denizen of the streets. When he encounters the Young Man character, who is an eighteen-year-old experiencing his first night living on the street, he is compelled to take him under his wing and protect him from the character Mouse. Mouse is a broken man who thrives on dispensing pain and lives by the code of “kill first or be killed.” The story unfolds as the Young Man, Oldman, and Mouse attempt to assert their right to live the life they want on the streets.
