GEORGETOWN MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
A CELEBRATION OF HOPE – “FOUR LEGS TO STAND ON”
An event co-sponsored by The Georgetown PTA & GeorgetownCARES –Thursday, November 8th, 6:30-8:30 in the GMHS Auditorium. This performance is free, but please reserve your tickets.
“Four Legs to Stand On” is a live performance of a short play that parents and students in middle school and older won’t want to miss. This isn’t just a show – and it’s no after school special – this is a raw, truthful look at what happens to a family when one of its members struggles with addiction. After the play, the company engages the audience in a short therapeutic forum that helps raise awareness of how the disease of addiction affects families and how we can help those who are affected. This experience is inspired by the community narratives of South Kingstown, RI, and written and presented by Ana Bess Moyer Bell. To learn more, watch this interview with the playwright and a cast member or see the web site.
From the web site:
This story exposes the secrecy that shrouds the topic of addiction. Opening up to this problem and highlighting the importance of support and family are the goal and the hope.
Each performance is followed by a twenty-minute talkback in which the audience is given a space to process their unique experiences. We have discovered this as a profound process for our participants. Themes that arise in the talkback help participants to explore emotions, discuss intervention and prevention, and aid in examining detrimental societal norms.
The talkback ultimately becomes an exercise in community building, behavioral change, and source for social change.
**NOTE: this performance is best suited for adults and kids in middle school and older, and is not intended for younger children.
