Parents/guardians and teens (ages 12 and up) are invited to a performance of "End of the Line," a show about the continuum of addiction, including vaping, on Monday, March 4, at 7:00 p.m., in the Little Theatre at Newton North. The 45-minute play will be followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session. One of the most powerful aspects of the show is the Q&A: Every performer is in recovery; each one speaks about his/her narrative and answers questions honestly and directly. Families are encouraged to use the production to spark conversations about drugs and alcohol with their teens.
The Improbable Players performed "End of the Line," for the entire freshmen class on Tuesday, February 12.
Here is some information about the Improbable Players from their website. "The Improbable Players uses theater performances and workshops to address addiction, alcoholism, and the opioid epidemic. Our performances are 25-45 minutes long followed by a talkback/Q&A. Our workshops give students the space and tools to combat social pressures and find coping strategies that work for them. Our plays are based on true stories and performed by people in recovery." Read more on the City of Newton website and at www.improbableplayers.org.
