A virtual event about life played out July 15, under the sponsorship of the Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition as the "Improbable Players" went on camera.
That and other webinars can be viewed in the archives of the MSAPC.
“Teens at Milton High School were moved watching the Improbable Players last year and we are thrilled to be bringing them back with their updated virtual performance called ‘The Group Chat’,” said Laurie Stillman, Director of the Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (MSAPC).
Improbable Players is a theater troupe made up of young people in recovery. Their performances, based on real life, include a talkback session in which audience members can ask questions of the actors about the play and about their struggles with addiction.
“The Group Chat” follows four friends during their first year out of high school. As one friend begins to use alcohol to deal with stress, the other friends in the group struggle to understand the true nature of addiction and how they can help. This play explores how addiction can affect relationships, how to talk to someone you love when you feel concerned about their use of drugs and alcohol, and ultimately, the different pathways to recovery.
Ideal for teens and the adults who care about them, audience will be able to log on to the performance through Zoom to watch and then interact with the members of Improbable Players.
