Four Legs to Strand On addiction awareness play at North Providence High School

The United States Attorney’s office kicked off it’s spring schedule of Opioid Awareness Outreach Programs by partnering to bring the acclaimed play Four Legs to Stand On to North Providence High School. The play was created, produced and presented by actors associated with COAAST (Creating Outreach About Addiction Support Together https://www.coaast.org/ ) in Rhode Island. At least eight high school and several community-wide presentations are planned.

 

The play is a modern American story where all is not well on the home front. Sam freshly home from his first year at college finds himself and his family in new, strange territory. Two illnesses are eating away at his family’s foundation. Only cancer is allowed a voice at the dinner table. Substance abuse and addiction are the other malady. The story exposes the secrecy that shrouds the topic of addiction. Opening up to this problem and highlighting the importance of support and family are the goals and the hope. Through humor and realism contrasted against hypocrisy, the story invites the audience to take a seat at the table. The play is followed by an open and thought provoking question and answer session between the performers and students.

 

In addition to bringing performances of Four Legs to Stand On to the high schools, the US Attorney’s Office is continuing an aggressive schedule of outreach programs at middle and high schools across the state addressing the rising tide and dangers of vaping and the use of e-cigarettes  by students.
