Why Did I Name My Play SAFE?
As a teacher and parent, I would always hear the word "safe" when discussing children and adolescents. I decided to write about two teenage girls who, although they may be protected by money, find themselves in real danger by their parents' selfishness and the pressure of today's world for women to be physically perfect. What I hope that the adults in my audience will remember when then see the show is that when you are an adolescent, you cannot see the future and that every day to a young person can feel like the last day. I hope that my young members of the audience will be able to see beyond the present and that the future is indeed within their grasp. Finally, I want my audience to understand that if we believe that advertising and the media dictates the way we most look and behave, then we are not safe.
