Featuring two short plays about the cycle of addiction,
Other People’s Kids and Finding Our Way
Living with Hope is produced by Playwrights Project in partnership with the SDSU School of Theatre, Film, and Television.
Directed by Peter Cirino and performed by SDSU Theatre students.
Four teenagers become entangled with meth, and their lives and families are changed forever. Developed in partnership with numerous organizations and local individuals who volunteered stories of meth’s impact on their lives, from youth in juvenile hall, adults in prisons and reentry programs, parents of those struggling with addiction, counselors, law enforcement, and service providers.
Personal reflections explore the cycle of addiction in a kaleidoscopic view of recovery, from first time use through the spiraling journey of recovery. Developed in Playwrights Project’s Out of the Yard program at RJD, which is provided in partnership with the William James Association, with support from the California Arts Council and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Playwrights Project supports adult playwrights in the development of new plays through its Play by Play program, which is a dramaturgical process designed to further the development of new plays and strengthen the skills of adult playwrights. The program offers playwrights the opportunity to hear their plays read by actors, engage in discussion with an audience, and work one-on-one with a theatre expert to further develop their script. The program culminates in a community reading of the revised scripts. This year, Playwrights Project is supporting the development of Caregivers Anonymous by Janet S. Tiger, thanks to sponsorship from The San Diego Foundation's Creative Catalyst Program.
