Theater Company Explores Conversations About Substance Abuse

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this episode of West Virginia Morning, we’ll learn how a theater company in Morgantown is looking to contribute to community conversations about substance abuse issues ravaging the region. 

That’s why they chose to produce a play that grapples with trauma, addiction, and love to be part of the 2018 summer season.

We’ll also hear another part of our Inside Appalachia series about the EPA’s superfund program and a small community in Fayette County, called Minden. Three high school students have devoted the past year to researching Minden’s possible PCB contamination and the history of the EPA’s involvement in the Shaffer Site.
