True Story, shorted from the phrase, “Based on a true story,” is a collection of narratives that aim to shine light on the foster care system. This show will represent multiple sides of the story: how it feels to foster a child, the truth behind the statistics of the foster care system, and finally, the significance of home. The group of artists hopes to evoke conversations centered around answering the critical question: What is Home? True Story is not about trauma; this show is about love.
