Alloway Hall (Venue 4), to Saturday

What’s the matter with kids these days? If you can spare an hour, this young Winnipeg company will share. Six teens afflicted with a variety pack of woes perform monologues on sexuality, suicide, drug abuse, pregnancy, mental illness and neglectful parents in this 50-minute drama set in a health clinic waiting room.

Service is slow, so each player has time to perform a monologue or two, and they do it well. Billed as "informative" and "aimed at promoting awareness of social issues," the show is sincere and frank, and I’m guessing it will be a hit in its next venue. The audience was told at a Friday performance proceeds from that performance would help the cast pursue a worthy goal, taking the show to high schools.
