I have worked with EORO in their playwriting program as an actor and mentor. The greatest aspects of the program are it gives the incarcerated youth a voice and self-worth. I have experienced young folks saying "I didn't know I could actually write a play!" when mentoring, and I can see how proud of them selves they are. Parents who come to the staged readings are often teary-eyed they are so proud of their child's achievement. It is truly a moving experience for everyone involved and I know we've all helped make a difference in everyone's lives.
