The Middle Place

This play started as a video and then was transformed by the creator into a play. It is a very interesting social commentary that raises many important issues about the way society treats adolescents who are living in shelters. Told from the point of view of the residents and the case workers, it presents small pastiches of life. But There is no plot, so no real beginning or end. Eventually it just stops.
The cast and staging were good, but the one to watch in future is Andrew Kushnir, the author.

    Yes, not really a play but an interesting piece of social commentary. The cast was quite good but had difficulty making the different characters they represented be distinct.
