Y-Haven Theatre Project: 12,000 Steps
ABOUT THE PLAY
Relapse is real. What happens when an upstanding figure in the recovery community relapses in a bad way? How will his fate impact those he has helped and those who have helped him? Can they let go of their pasts, their attachments, and their survivors’ guilt to stay sober – to stay alive? 12,000 Steps is about the long road to recovery, through recovery, and the persistence and perseverance required to move forward each day even in our darkest hours.
A consistent audience favorite, the CPT/Y-Haven Theatre Project offers candid insight into important issues of our society and gives real hope for growth and change. Audiences are deeply moved by the poignant stories presented in this powerful collaboration.
