JUVIE is the most honored of Jerome McDonough’s many acclaimed plays. Set in a juvenile detention center, JUVIE depicts the life of kids who are scared, lonely, disturbed and locked up. Some have killed and some are just misfits. Skip, a repeat offender waiting to get out to enjoy his next drink…Philly, describing the way her arson fires “drive away the darkness”…Andy, a boy unaware of the crime for which he was arrested…Jean, a heroin addict who burgles an old man’s house to support her habit, then beats him viciously when he walks in on her. These are just a few of the stories you will hear told in the show.
