Normal In Schools
May 13, 2010

As the mother of a 16 year old daughter, it's vital that I understand the specifics of eating disorders - what to watch for, how to help. Normal presented this all to me in an educational and creative way that allowed me to understand and empathize. ED was an issue that I only knew about through the news, which doesn't paint the full picture. It also is a venue that speaks directly to my daughter, which is not always easy to do! Through witnessing the characters go through the challenges of ED, our whole family was able to truly feel as though we understood the issue. Also, the talk back sessions after the performance provided a way for us to ask additional questions and receive referals if needed.

How to get the play seen by more people.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Not only does the play have a "must be heard" message - the quality of the script, music, and actors makes it like seeing a broadway play.
