Review for Each One Reach One, South San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been involved with EORO for over 10 years as an actor and mentor in the playwriting and served on the board of directors. Working with an incarcerated youth in the process of writing a play based on their greatest wish or fear in life is an incredible experience. Most often the material is very auto biographical and extremely heart felt. Sometimes the young men writiing deeper material than the girls. To be able to help a young person have a voice - that most often is not provided one is such a gift. The show day is so exciting with every student brimming with pride for their accomplishment. The added plus of having a family member attend the show inside detention and witness there success is ovewhelming. Watching the youth and their professional actors on stage taking their bows is a memory that sticks with me long after I leave. The pride on their faces is unforgettable and I feel so blessed to have contributed a small part towards that success by my acting.
