New London High School, Jefferson Ave., New London, CT , 06320

From the newsroom to the tough streets of New London, violence is an unstoppable epidemic. On every channel, the news reports violence, mass murders, and foreign conflicts; yet it continues to ignore the war that is happening right in our back yards, on our streets and in our communities. Writer's Block's "Sincerely, The Streets" is a riveting interpretive play, written, performed and produced primarily by the youth involved, that looks critically and creatively at the culture in which we live today.

Sincerely, The Streets will be presented at New London High School on August 15 at 7:00 p.m. and August 16 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students and $12 for adults. Call 860-442-5625 or visit our website at www.writersblockink.org
