A Workshop Helps The Homeless See Themselves In Shakespeare's Plays

Shakespeare wrote for the masses. In the 1600's the pit of London's Globe Theater would have been a boisterous hangout, full of butchers, tanners and commoners who paid a full day's wages to see the show.

That inspired San Francisco homeless advocate Meghan Freeback to bring the Bard back down to earth by bringing Shakespearean actors and a group of homeless people together to discover how the playwright's words can still resonate us today.

Meghan is the CEO of Project Homeless Connect, and she spoke with KCBS Anchor Melissa Culross.
