The Addiction Performance Project

Presented by Theater of War

Thursday, April 5th at 7:00 PM

The Addiction Performance Project presents dramatic readings of Act Three of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night as a catalyst for town hall discussions about the disease of addiction as it touches patients, families, and health professionals who work in the fields of primary care, nursing, and clinical bioethics.

Each reading is followed by a panel discussion, led by a diverse panel of community experts, culminating in a facilitated town hall discussion about the complex ethical and professional challenges posed by screening for, and treating, patients who are abusing drugs and/or struggling with addiction.

This unique participatory event raises awareness of addiction as a chronic disease, as well as the importance of screening for and addressing substance abuse in advance of the emergence of addiction. The reading/discussion format is intended to break down the stigma associated with addiction and promote healthy dialogue among diverse communities–public and professional–fostering compassion, cooperation, and understanding about patients who are living with the disease of addiction.
