I attended one of Each One Reach One play performances at the detention center in San Mateo County. It was quite an experience to see but one I will most certainly will never forget. The young men that wrote the plays looked so happy and excited to see their plays preformed by actors and even more thrilled to have them acted out in front of an audience. I was struck by one young man's story and how he was released for the detention center but asked to come back so he could have his play preformed. It just shows how much he enjoyed participating in the play writing workshop and wanted to see his play through to the end. Each participant seamed excited to have their plays heard and appreciated. I think what Each One Reach One is doing for our incarcerated youth is trying to break the cycle and educate them while getting them on the right track.
