Summary
There are 1.4 million homeless youths on the streets of America; ten thousand of these youths live on the streets of Hollywood. They are runaways, some are 'throwaways,' abandoned or forcefully exiled from their families' homes. The average age of these youths is fifteen. About a third of them are gay, lesbian or transgender. In their survival these young people endure familial abuse, suicide attempts, drugs and alcohol, prostitution, and life on the streets. In 1992, seventy homeless youths - of various racial, cultural and sexual identities - registered for a theatre project in the Hollywood shelter where they lived. Through this project they were encouraged to share their stories. Over a period of seven months these stories were shaped into monologues, scenes and songs. Of the original seventy, ten completed the project and became performers, playing the roles from each other's lives. In 1993, their play, Friendly Fire, was the centerpiece of the prestigious Los Angeles Festival before it toured to high acclaim in high schools throughout the city. Surviving Friendly Fire is a documentary about ten teenagers who endured incredible cruelties and hardships, and found the courage to tell their story
