(IN)Dependent: The Heroin Project is a drama by Kent State University students Emelia Sherin and Zach Manthey, is based on interviews with heroin users, counselors, and family members. It exposes the reality of the heroin crisis, and captures the physical, mental, and emotional issues of people who are or in the past were addicted to opioids, friends, families, nurses, policemen, and children undergo from primary and secondary interaction with heroin. The Academy of Music Theatre will partner with Hampshire HOPE, a multi-sector opioid coalition in Northampton, to raise awareness about Opioid use disorder, reduce stigma, and elevate the voices of those who are oppressed; to provide a deeper, more meaningful community engagement process which allows us to better understand the experiences of those impacted by Opioid use disorder.
