Many have been the "issue" plays written about the perils of alcohol for teens, but much less material is available about another dark and often hidden issue -- an alcoholic parent.
"Home Safe is a deeply moving and honest look at a painful subject. It is told with love and understanding, and a deep sympathy that comes with knowledge and forgiveness. It has tenderness, humor, pain and beauty. I know of nothing that deals with the issue of alcohol abuse in such an imaginative, dramatic and unadorned fashion. Home Safe is a play that everyone should see."Graham Whitehead, Child's Play Theatre, Arizona
