Yet another play from the author of Playing Hardball and Sticks and Stones. Like his other plays, Turn Around toured throughout the country as part of the renowned Issues and Awareness Tour of The Missoula Children's Theatre. This is a highly theatrical, easily produced play that revolves around the life of Andy, an angry, troubled ten year old boy. Andy physically and verbally strikes out at everyone -- his parents, teachers, classmates - because this is the only way he knows to deal with the world around him. He even considers alcohol to ease his torment, but with the help of a new friend learns to overcome his rage and take a new look at life.

"Turn Around fits in perfectly with the peace-making skills I have been trying to teach in the classroom." - Debby l. Perry, Counselor, Conrad Public Schools, Conrad, MT

"....a compelling presentation ... a riveting drama highlighting the degree to which violence is an accepted part of our society." - Deb Yerkes, Great Falls Public Schools, Great Falls, MT

"Your production actually brought tears to my eyes as I recalled hours and hours spent with students from violent, abusive and neglected homes." - Tomas F. Anderson, St. Joseph School, Missoula, MT

Turn Around was originally produced by the Missoula Children's Theatre Issues and Awareness Tour on January 23, 1995 and was directed by Don Kukla.
