For Kof, Ped and Trace, the shoe is hope – hope of a home, a mother, of wealth, of comfort. If they can just find the matching shoe, the other half of the pair, they just know they can escape, and find their way to safety.

Polka is proud to be associated with Shelter and Children of The Andes on this production, and is committed to helping raise awareness of children who are homeless or in poor housing across the world.
