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.

JUVIE’s cast will be made up of select young performers from Stage Left Children’s Theater.

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Illinois.
