Doing Poetry With Helen, Veronica, Sonny and Poor Dead Charlie
Three teenagers, devastated by the death of a friend, decide to go on with their weekly poetry reading session that the four of them used to share. When Charlie's turn to read comes up, he appears to the audience, but not to the characters on stage. Did Charlie commit suicide? Can they find a way to adjust to their loss? Anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one will find his or her heart touched by Peter Dee's powerful, deeply affecting words. Performed to cheering audiences across the country, his play pulls no punches with its humor, language, or emotional impact, and it gives young actors an extraordinary chance to grow while performing material that touches their world.
