Eight-year old Alexi is hiding in a closet with his younger brother.
It’s a game they often play called “invisibility cloak” because, as Alexi says, “Being invisible is the best superpower.”
But the real story is that their mother locked them in the closet for their own safety. Ultimately, domestic violence drove them into homelessness.
It’s one child’s story of being homeless of a dozen told through the play, “I Will Be Your Voice.” Alexi, portrayed by Dominic Saxman, 9, of Enola, is one of the youngest in a cast comprised of area children.
