The Studio@620 invites you to the latest installment of the Social Justice
Roundtable Discussion Series ”Addiction: Empathy or Disdain?“on Wednesday July 16.
The evening will feature ”A Flower for Alex“, a one-act play exploring the
dynamics and conflicting views that arise within a family dealing with the
consequences of addiction. Playwright Chuck Reigle, a St Petersburg
resident, will be among the participants in a panel discussion after the play.
In ”A Flower for Alex“, siblings fall on either side of the equation with regard
to the role that addiction played in the death of a loved one.
Empathy or Disdain.....where do you stand?
Panelists for the post-play discussion will include:
Tobi B. West (Assoc. State Attorney), Ricky Roberts (Founder/CEO of You Are Valued), Dr. Karen Monroe (Family Practice), Chuck Reigle (Playwright), and Jason Beck (Flower Bus Productions)
Come explore the issue with us. Light hors d'oeuvres will be provided.
