In the George Street Playhouse’s powerful musical about opioid abuse and its impact on teens and families, we follow the story of star athlete Hope, who has limitless potential. When a boy she likes offers her one little pill to reduce the pain from a soccer injury, Hope makes a decision that rapidly transforms her dreams into an escalating nightmare. With her future at stake, will Hope be able to confront her opioid abuse and stop feeding the monster that seeks to destroy everything she cares about?This original musical was created from interviews with prevention experts, families with children struggling with this disease, recovering individuals, doctors, law enforcement officers, students, and educators. The story defines opioid abuse as a disease and explores how individuals have the power to make positive behavioral decisions to avoid opioid use and substance use disorder. Program length 65minutes.
Available September 2019 to April 2020.
