Featuring a multi-ethnic cast, this newly updated version of Inner Circle focuses on the story of Sarah, a young girl who is trying with all her might to survive the AIDS virus, despite the fear, prejudice, and ignorance of her classmates. With the help of her friends, Sarah might just stand a fighting chance. Although there is a decline in the number of AIDS related deaths, there still remains an increase in HIV infections, especially among teenagers. As of this writing, two Americans under the age of twenty become infected with HIV ... every hour. Our best hope in combating AIDS is the strategy which this play advocates -- prevention. The Inner Circle plays deal frankly with age-appropriate HIV prevention while encouraging development of self-esteem and individual responsibility.
Over 4 million people have seen a production of The Inner Circle plays, making these educational dramas the most widely seen pieces of their kind.
