Wilderness is an inspirational play that presents the deeply personal stories of 6 adolescents and their families. It is a powerful and important piece of work that needs to be shared. It touches my heart personally because as many of you know my son Harrison Hauk spent the last year away from home in Utah and half the year was spent at Evoke Wilderness Program. We sent him on this journey because of his struggle with substance dependency, depression, anxiety and many mental health issues that adolescents are dealing with today. All I can tell you is that it saved his life and he is a different person today!!!!!!
The Amazing and Talented Anne Hamburger had a similar story with her own son and through her theatre program called En Garde Arts she produced the Wilderness experience on stage. Wilderness ran for 24 performances at the Abrons Art Center in New York City. It not only achieved success as theatre , but was an effective vehicle for conversation aiming to eradicate the secrecy surrounding the mental health issues that plague teens and their families today. It is a conversation that must continue.
I hope you can join me today in supporting En Garde Arts as they prepare to bring "Wilderness" on it's first tour around the country. Your donation will help them go on tour and share this Powerful production with so many people that need to hear the message and talk openly about these difficult issues in the mental health field. There is no donation to small or too large. Please help me reach my goal before the year ends.
I Thank You So Very Much! Peace.
