darklight

by Lindsay Price

darklight examines depression and anxiety in teens. Characters fight their inner thoughts, search for their truths, and have surreal conversations with death. Some fail, some find hope.

This is a relevant and necessary issue to explore.

Praise for darklight

Rachelle Kinn
CHS Theatre Department
darklight is a great play about a topic no one want to talk about. It was a challenging and rewarding play to direct.
Natalie Safley
Freeport High School
This show made discussing mental illness accessible to young people. It created a safe environment for friends and family to talk about their challenges with anxiety, depression and suicide.
Karah Janssen
Marie Murphy School
This show gave our students a challenge both in scene work and in ensemble work. We felt good about doing a show with a relevant, meaningful social message. It prompted fantastic, meaningful discussions in classes after the school saw the play.
