Mundelein High School Puts On A Must See Show For Parents And Teens

By: David Brottman, MD

To be fair to all groups, I do not promote outside events in this newsletter. But here is the exception that defines the rule.

A World High School Premier of an important work is being performed at Mundelein High School. The fall play is Trust, by David Schwimmer and Andy Bellin. Trust has only been produced one other time, in its World Premiere in 2010 at Lookingglass Theatre in Chicago. MHS Theatre will be presenting the World High School Premiere of this yet to be published play. It is the story of a seemingly innocent online encounter that threatens to unravel the fabric of an American family, when their teenage daughter becomes the victim of sexual abuse when she befriends a man she meets on the internet. As the internet increasingly becomes the hunting ground for predators, this production will serve not only to raise awareness, but move and empower audience members to take action in their communities and within their own families. Mundelein High School has enlisted, as community engagement partners, the Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center, the Lake County State's Attorney's Office and the Mundelein Police Department. These groups, along with the social work staff at MHS, will be building educational programs around the play for both the community and the students and staff of MHS. Trust will be performed on November 13, 14 and 15.

Don't miss this. Here is an excellent opportunity to open the dialogue with your teen on this very important subject.
