Post-Show Discussion - Improbable Players and Right Turn

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 - 9:30pm

Immediately following the 7:30 performance, representatives from two local organizations will lead a brief discussion about addiction, as it relates to the play.

Hear from two organizations that use the arts as a tool for addiction recovery. Lynn Bratley from the Improbable Players is a Watertown-based troupe that uses theatrical performance as a way to confront the disease of addiction. The Players’ mission is “to set the stage for prevention by educating the public about addiction and recovery through dramatic performances and theater workshops--presented by actors who are in long-term recovery from addictions - that help people recognize situations in their own lives and seek the help they need.”

Right Turn is an innovative program that helps patients overcome addiction in a uniquely creative environment, using the arts as a tool for recovery. It offers evidence-based treatment that fosters self-expression and imagination, and a caring staff that is willing to pull out a guitar or a paintbrush to help someone change direction. Joshua Bennett-Johnson Right Turn will be joining us to discuss their work.

Oceanside cast member Allan Mayo will also be joining the discussion.
