In honor of the FREE showing of ‘How To Be A Respectable Junkie’ that takes place this coming Thursday, April 19th, we are re-releasing Episode 104 featuring Greg Vovos.
Greg interviews Greg Vovos, a playwright and director who has worked in Cleveland theater since 1998. While Greg has written a myriad of plays, he’s also worked consistently for the Theatre of Healthy Living at the Fine Arts Association; crafting plays for high schools, detention centers, and youth prisons about issues like racism, teen pregnancy, obesity, and drug and alcohol abuse. His most recent play, titled “How to Be a Respectable Junkie,” at the Cuyahoga County Public Library in Parma, tells the story of Brian, a heroin addict set on taking his own life to spare everyone around him from his problems.
Listen to the podcast to discover how through his friendship, playwright Vovos was able to craft a play about the day-to-day realities of someone living with substance use disorder.
