My heart is hitchhiking down peachtree street is a one-man show about living far away from home. It’s about the stories you tell people when they ask you where you’re from. It’s about learning that once you leave, you can’t go back.
Using animation, storytelling, and spoken word, my heart is hitchhiking down peachtree street is about trying to make sense of where you come from when you’re very far from home.
