ATWT WRITER REVIVES OPHELIA
Mary Pipher's 1994 nonfiction book Reviving Ophelia, about the negative effects of popular culture on the self-esteem of teen girls, became a bible for a generation of parents. Playwright Cherie Bennett's adaptation is an up-to-the minute exploration, told through the lives of four childhood friends, of such adolescent themes as friendships and relationships with peers and parents, multicultural adoption, drugs, alcohol, body image and suicide... Bennett, a Salt Lake City playwright and actor, also writes popular youth novels, including A Heart Divided, and with her husband, Jeff Gottesfeld, TV scripts for "As the World Turns" and "Smallville."
Sounds like this is a play ATWT characters ranging from Faith and Alison to Lily and Emily could benefit from. Details, here!
