Elephant-in-the-Room Series: The Opiod Crisis Effect on Families

So much that needs healing in our world... why are we uncomfortable talking about it? New Hampshire Theatre Project has launched a provocative series featuring four plays about subjects that we as a society often have difficulty discussing: abuse and human trafficking, mental illness, the opioid crisis, and death and dying. Each event is moderated by Timothy Barretto, known for his UNH courses on Managing Conflict in the Community, who will facilitate discussion among audience members, artists, and a panel of experts on the topic. Questions focus on attitudes about ethical issues involved in the subject over time and today, and our responsibility as a society to bring these issues out of the shadows and into the cultural mainstream.

On March 22 join us for the third in our four-part series, focusing on the opioid crisis and its effect on families, featuring a playreading of A Wider Circle by Mary Ellen Hedrick. Panelists include Denise Askins, Professor of English at Saint Anselm College. Visit www.nhtheatreproject.org for more details. Admission is free and open to the public.
