Last fall, Weaver Library had standing room only for the powerful play Four Legs to Stand On, a play that strives to bring addiction awareness and our country’s opioid crisis to the mainstream. The East Providence Public Library and the East Providence Prevention Coalition have partnered once again to bring Four Legs to Stand On, Act II to our community.
In Act II we pull up a seat again beside the character Sam; this time in group therapy. We’re exposed to the successes of recovery and the heartbreak of relapse. The play dives into the realities of a cast of characters fighting for their lives. The second act pushes us all to stand firm in our support of those fighting this disease and ending this national epidemic.
Four Legs to Stand On, Act II is a production of COAAST, written by Ana Bess Moyer Bell, and commissioned by Trinity Repertory Company.
The Act II performance is 60 minutes, followed by 20-minute talk-back with the playwright and cast. Audiences don’t need to see Act I to understand Act II. Free and open to all, however seating is limited.
