Pack Playhouse to perform “Addict” this weekend

Although playwright Jerome McDonough wrote his drama “Addict” back in 1985, its themes are still relevant 38 years later. If anything, the problem with drugs in America has gotten worse.

The Pack Playhouse will perform McDonough’s “Addict” on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the theater. A synopsis of the play tells the story: “This frightening portrayal of the horrors of drug and alcohol abuse shows children and young adults yielding to the almost irresistible lure of drugs—and suffering the miserable consequences.”

“Addict” does not have one main character. Rather, it tells the stories of children and young adults who find themselves in a place they don’t want to be: addicted to drugs. Each character tells his or her story to the audience.

The set is sparse with only two benches on stage. This sparseness is appropriate given the subject matter. The characters’ words matter, not the set.

The shows will be performed at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, while Sunday’s matinee show will be a 2:30 p.m. The approximate running time of the play is one hour.
