AFTERMATH BUZZ

“Excellent! All teenage students should see and experience ‘aftermath’." ~ Linda Seeley - New Jersey - Tiger RAP Social Service Agency

“Very effective without speaking down to students.” ~ Dr. Glenn Pollock - School Psychologist - New York Schools

“I am a Registered Drama Therapist at North Texas State Hospital and we have an adolescent substance-abuse unit where I work as an Associate Psychologist and produce youth drama with the kids. As I was browsing the Heuer catalog, I noticed that "aftermath" covered many of the issues that are pertinent to kids today - more than ever. The group here has had a wonderful time working and rehearsing on this play. Some of them have even taken the time to review the playwright's web page in order to learn more about him. We would like to express our appreciation for this great drama.” ~ Priscilla Haynes - Drama Therapist - North Texas State Hospital
