Jerome McDonough's "Addict" gives audiences a glimpse into the lives of teens suffering from drug addiction and puts a human face on what remains a nation-wide epidemic. As the young actors step forward from the crowd, they engage the audience in their highs, their lows and their absolute rock bottoms. "Addict" takes you on a walk through high school hallways, VIP access at a rock concert, the chemical abuse wing of a children's hospital and the sidestreets of your own hometown. The show espouses a compassionate call to action advocating that help is available and it's never too late to reach out to someone in need. "No one needs to suffer alone. No living person is beyond help." Entertaining, educational, and every bit as relevant as when it was written.
