Northeast Middlesex Police Departments To Bring New Play, "RECOVERY," For Staged Reading

Nov 21, 2019 11:35AM

The Billerica Police Department, Burlington Police Department, and Tewksbury Police Department, in collaboration as the Northeast Middlesex Police Partnership, are presenting a staged reading of RECOVERY.

RECOVERY is a new work by local playwright Anne Lucas that previously debuted off Broadway (NYC) in 2018 and was also presented for multiple shows in Boston and Marblehead’s Little Theatre. RECOVERY tells the story of addiction and recovery both from the viewpoint of the person with substance misuse but also from the viewpoint of the family. Written from the playwright’s personal experience RECOVERY is an opportunity to shed a light on the opioid epidemic’s ripple effects and the devastation it causes.

The reading will be held on Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Billerica Marshall Middle School at 15 Floyd Street. The public is welcome free of charge to attend the 90 minute performance and stay for a 30 minute talk-back session after the show with area officers, clinical staff, and those with lived experience.

For more information community members may reach out to Sgt. Steve Elmore Billerica Police 978-215-9682 or SElmore@billericapolice.org.
