Choosing Change

Spring 2009

By the students of Oak Hill Academy

Directed by David Andrew Snider

In collaboration with the students of Oak Hill Academy and Mentoring Today, this piece explores life before, during and after contact with the DC Juvenile Justice system. Through poetry, prose and interactive storytelling, this play shares the heart of those who travel through the system – and how the system is regaining its heart.
This play was made possible through the support of DC’s Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.
