Recovery, running at MLT from 10/5 through 10/13, centers around three young women, all grappling with the reality of addiction, and their mothers. As reported by the New York Times, “more people died of drug overdoses in 2018 than in the entire Vietnam War.” “Anne Lucas's new play RECOVERY is a powerful, brilliantly conceived, and ultimately redemptive tour de force that plunges us into the lives of a group of mothers and daughters who are struggling with the hopes and challenges of healing from addiction,” says Deborah Sosin, LICSW, clinical social worker, and author of Breaking Free of Addiction: 42 Therapeutic Tools to Help You Recover from Problem Drug and Alcohol Use. “Recovery deals with the parent-adolescent struggle over drug addiction with insight and compassion. It will draw you in, wring you out, and make you think, since playwright Anne Lucas has fought this fight and come out of it with her relationship and her daughter reclaimed. A play straight from the heart,” reports Linda Weltner, Boston Globe Columnist.
