Actions and Detail Panel

What happens when the things that bring us comfort and control begin to break, wreck and ravage?
Wasted is inspired by the real life experiences of the Milk Crate Theatre Ensemble that explores addiction in all its shapes and sizes - from drugs and sugar to gaming and gambling. It delves into the wasted opportunities that occur when addiction takes over and we can no longer make rational choices and decisions. Using Augusto Boal inspired model of Forum Theatre; Milk Crate Theatre will get audiences up out of their seats and onto the stage to become part of a community problem solving experience. Wasted will inspire audiences to examine their perceptions and actively brainstorm solutions to help break the downward spiral of addiction and work towards positive social change.
The findings from the performances will be use to generate a report with action plans for audience members to become change makers in their communities.
*Milk Crate Theatre's Forum Theatre performances are a free event, if you are able to please consider including an optional donation is lieu of a ticket price.
