Play Brings Lessons of Life and Public Transit to Saint Louis UniversityReturn to Blog
It’s secret that transit riders are willing to share: Riding public transit offers many opportunities for life lessons and sense of community. True fellowship happens on your bus, on your train. Now a local productions company has brought that sentiment to the theater. Eye on the Sparrow: The World Within St. Louis, written by Lee Patton Chiles, is a play about the hardships of life, the fellowship of a community, and the redemption possible in our own lives. All from the seats of St. Louis public transit.
From the play’s website:
Sparrows are everywhere, and are so common we hardly notice them. St. Louis is full of human sparrows – ordinary people who are hardly noticed, but who meet the challenges of life with dignity, humor and fierce courage. EYE ON THE SPARROW follows one woman, Harper, as she falls from the grace of a good job, a marriage and a home, only to become one among the sparrows. Set within the community of St. Louis public transportation, Harper’s life becomes intertwined with the lives of these heroic ordinary people. Through their everyday struggles, fights and kindnesses, these urban philosophers teach Harper how to begin her life again.
