Drama behind bars

Original post made on Sep 2, 2007

Steel bars aren't the only barriers restraining the underage characters of Jerome McDonough's "Juvie." Even if the 12 youths being held at juvenile hall are released, parental negligence, addiction, mental illness, peer pressure and guilt will continue to erode any potential they have of breaking their "bad kid" images.

Our drama club here in New Zealand (lol)
have done this play proffesionaly.
it went very well and showed a different side to teen actors/actresses such as myself. it was a hard play to do but on the whole side it showed good morals and what life is like for some teens in these sorts of situtions.
