An exceptional new play by the gifted Sean David Bennett. Set in the present in the fictitious Safe Harbour half-way house on eastern Long Island, this significant work brings to the forefront the lives of broken men and women still searching for a sense of worth in a world stacked against them. Even at Safe Harbour, a place intended to provide hope, comfort and rehabilitation, the powers-that-be find ways to bilk the system and punish those who speak out or question their abuse of power. Based on true incidents, the lives of these incredibly rich and vulnerable residents will grab your audiences and bring them full force into a world known only by those who walk the streets or fall victim to the never ending battle of alcohol abuse and addiction. Thirty-year-old Travis Moretti intervenes in an attempt to salvage the little hope left for exploited 17-year-old Holly, who has been chosen as the “poster girl” for a new facility for young mothers and their babies. Travis is brutally murdered by a drug crazed Holly and the residents at the half-way house are left to mourn yet another tragic loss. And when the spin begins, the resident patriarch of the house, Ben Gold, confronts Chalmers, founder and CEO of Safe Harbour. Seems someone has been investigating the misappropriation of funds at the facility and Ben seizes the opportunity to wield some power of his own. Despite the serious subject matter, Bennett brings much humor and insight to the play and audiences will fall in love with the humanity the residents bring to the story. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
