In his Off-Broadway playwriting debut, Atlantic Ensemble member Rod McLachlan pulls back the curtain on modern television drama at its most extreme. Connie is an intervention counselor and producer on a reality television series which profiles people suffering from addiction.
Against her better judgment, Connie’s superiors convince her to take on a special, risky case in the hopes of making a riveting, explosive episode. When Connie and her colleagues travel to South Carolina to interview a young meth addict and his family, Connie’s own demons resurface and the “explosive episode” threatens to blow up in her face.
Cast & Creative
“As the value systems of therapy, media and family collide, McLachlan finds smart ways to bleed them into each other, raising pertinent questions without demonizing the characters or maligning their professional abilities.”

“Factor in the crack cast…this smart and topical play…is ready for prime time.”
