Stories of Addiction is co-produced by the Seacoast Rep and Jackie Burke in an attempt to help raise awareness about the heroin epidemic affecting the Seacoast. This event is free and open to the public. Donations will be collected during the event and all proceeds will benefit Ambers Place – a specialty recovery respite for those suffering from substance use disorder.
For the last few months, people from around the state have been submitting their personal stories of addiction. On Sunday May 8th, these people will either read their stories or have it read on their behalf.
Seacoast Repertory Theatre is still seeking additional submissions to be presented on this night.
Stories should be non-fiction, five minutes or less when read out loud and can be from any point of view. In addition to seeking stories from those suffering from or recovering from addiction, Seacoast Rep is seeking stories from caretakers, family members, friends or any unique perspective.
Submissions and questions should be emailed to Kathleen@seacoastrep.org.
