None of the young adults in your play had addiction as they goal, but clearly demonstrated not only how this can happen but also the consequences of addiction in their lives.

"What concept did you find particularly pertinent to your audience?"
The part of the Improbable Players program that was so strong was asking for help and seeing themselves as "sick" vs. "bad" - that sat with me. I want my students to understand they can ask for help and stop the stigma.
"The three performances and workshops with youth done by Improbable Players was a success in bringing a clear messae about substance use and it's consequendces to hundreds of youth in Newport - in a creative way that really got the message across. Now is the moment of opportunity to build on, to keep the discussion going."
"Thank you for your performance and discussion about such a timely and serious problem in the United States. The feedback has been very positive. Our residents are very curious about this issue and how it could impact their grand children and families. "
