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
