Act II


SCROLL DOWN

Act II


In Act II we pull up a seat again beside Sam; this time in group therapy. We’re exposed to the successes of recovery and the heartbreak of relapse. Here we find the intimate space that exists between therapist and patient, patient and peer, and patient and disease. We dive head first into the realities of a cast of characters fighting for their lives. The second act pushes us all to stand firm in our support of those fighting this disease and and ending this national epidemic.


ACT II was commissioned by Trinity Repertory Company


These pages are littered with the voices of two-plus years of audience member’s reactions, friends that have recently passed, blogs, research papers, intimate conversations, and all of the moments in-between.

I want to tell you all of the characters find long-term recovery, re-unite with their families, fall in love, and ride off into the sunset.

I can’t.
That wouldn’t be true to life.
— Ana Bess Moyer Bell, Playwright
