The one-acts boast the talents of Martha Plimpton, Chris Sarandon, Trudie Styler, Jackie Hoffman, Peter Bartlett and Jessica Hecht. The 6:30 PM performance will benefit the Caron Treatment Centers, a leader in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. Peter DuBois, the producing director of the Public Theater, directs Addictions, which "delves into the lives of three very different women and their dependencies."
Playwright Walsh-Smith, author of Bonkers, penned Addictions after the suicide of her youngest brother Kevin, who was a long-time alcohol addict. According to press notes, it is Walsh-Smith's hope "that this play might help other suffering addicts."
