On Stage This Week(end): June 29 – July 2

It’s a very light weekend for theater most likely because is it the weekend before Independence Day. However, I highly suggest that in between the cookouts and fireworks you check out Bella Bravo’s play As Bad As They. I recently did a piece for the Limestone Post about the play, and I personally can’t wait to see it on Friday. Get more information below.

As Bad As They

Written by Bella Bravo

In As Bad As They, Jordan Ternin tries to decipher the fine line between her impulses to help and control after her brother Caleb decides to quit using. This play is set in present-day Bloomington, Indiana—in the midst of the Midwest’s opioid-heroin epidemic. The play begins with the estranged lives of Caleb and Jordan. The siblings are reunited on the most dangerous day for an addict, the day he’s released from state custody. On this day the dosage that Caleb handled comfortably two weeks before could cause his death.

Presented by Monster House at the Blockhouse on July 3o. Tickets are $5 and an addition $5 donation is encouraged. All proceeds go to Courage for Change, peer-run, sober-living, and low-barrier halfway house in Bloomington.
