“The Race Project” was the latest show in a triumphant series of original plays written and performed by the clients of Phoenix House Long Island City Center and students from the outreach division of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Three shows over a weekend in April were performed at Phoenix House Long Island City Center, Phoenix House Career Academy, and the Stella Adler Studio in Manhattan for clients, guests, staff, and family. Fourteen original skits were performed by the troupe reflecting their views on the subject of race. The performances were thought-provoking and moving, with audiences at all shows giving the ensemble their undivided attention and rousing applause at its conclusion.
We are truly proud of our clients courageously working as members of this group, as they share their creativity and personal growth during residential treatment. The Stella Adler Studio’s theater philosophy is similar to Phoenix House’s treatment philosophy – stressing the importance of community and giving back. We are grateful for the opportunities the Studio has provided to our clients involved in this important partnership, as they teach and promote a healthy, therapeutic outlet during recovery.
