The King of Howard Street: A play by our client Anthony Williams


Adapted by Ren Pepitone from several journals of Health Care for the Homeless client Anthony Williams, the new play The King of Howard Street hits close to home. Told through the eyes of one of our most active client advocates, this memoir-turned-drama has a lot to say about the many different societal and personal aspects of homelessness. 

For over 20 years, Anthony lived in abandoned buildings along Howard Street and fought everyday just to get by. When Anthony received health care at Health Care for the Homeless, it was the first time he found stability in a long while. Now, he has become a staunch advocate for people experiencing homelessness and cares for his friends and neighbors without homes. Whether it’s fighting for a living minimum wage in Baltimore or standing up for access to affordable housing in Annapolis, Anthony has committed all of himself to ending and preventing homelessness.

But getting there wasn’t easy, and the trials and tribulations that come with a life of poverty are omnipresent. Through The King of Howard Street, Anthony shares his story of pain, heartache and resilience. Brought to the stage through an interesting mix of dance, music, and drama, King Of Howard Street takes you on a beautiful ride of surrealism, imagination, and cold hard reality.

The play is performed by the Annex Theater at MONDO May 18-June 3. For more details and to purchase tickets, view their website here.
