THE OPIOID CRISIS: Not in My Backyard, by Peace Mountain Theatre Company
Congregation Har Shalom
Potomac, MD
Share this event:


Opioid addiction is impacting staggering numbers of individuals and families, including many right here in Montgomery County. In 2016, 2,100 people overdosed in our state; 162 of them lived in our county. Peace Mountain Theatre Company (PMTC) is paying close attention, and we are proud to bring this educational outreach program to the area for the first time.

This event will feature:

1) A performance of Tom Kelly's moving play, The Empty Chair. The setting is a counseling center for teenagers recovering from substance abuse. After one of their peers has just died of an overdose, the atmosphere is tense and uneasy as each young person speaks about his or her memory of the teen who died. The dramatic monologues tell us a great deal about each speaker and the terrors of drug abuse.

2) Panel Discussion of Experts including a Montgomery County law enforcement officer, a recovered opioid addict, the father of a son who overdosed, and the Director of Cornerstone Montgomery, a provider of behavioral health services in Montgomery County (A portion of the proceeds for this event will go to Cornerstone Montgomery).

3) Q & A between audience and panel of experts.

The material is appropriate for young teens and up.

PMTC welcomes contributions to support our programs. PMTC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
