I had never seen a play at the Boston Playwrights' Theatre. The theater is small and intimate, but as with other black-box theaters is capable of really recreating itself... continued

I loved this play-Sean Cote was terrific in his part-It was as if he actually had an addiction and knew what to expect-I liked the small theatre where you could see and hear clearly--great show

The play was a one person monologue about 30 days in Rehab. Very emotional, enlightening.

Description

Written by John Shea

Directed by Brett Marks

Starring Sean A. Cote

_

Is it possible to turn your life around in thirty days?_ A close look at one man’s search for redemption and understanding, Junkie follows Cal, a Somerville heroin addict, as he undergoes thirty days in a state rehabilitation center. Over this brief span of sobriety, Cal confronts not only the choices which brought him to rehab, but also the world that made him who he is. Funny and unapologetic, Junkie shows us the path to recovery is not always a clear trail.

About the Ticket Supplier: Argos Productions

At Argos, we believe that the strongest way for us to help playwrights grow as writers is through production of their work. Putting the characters in three dimensions is the way we like to work, so the focus of our efforts is to get the play up on its feet. However, we know that not every show is ready for the stage right away, so Argos Productions strives to provide insight, support, and potential development opportunities to all playwrights who come to us, whenever resources will allow.
