November 9, 2008: The BenchMark

A poignant satire, The BenchMark follows a homeless man named "Mark" as he relates his observations on the world around him and his life experiences, while seeking refuge from their pain in liquor and literature. The protagonist is a composite character based on the lives of three homeless men. We spoke with playwright Rick Roberts and others involved in this year's reprise production of "The BenchMark" at Chicago Temple with proceeds benefitting organizations helping the homeless.
