Closure? It's not going to help you with closure...
Tito... TITO! Come back! You better not walk out that... (she grabs her coat and car keys)..."
This year’s Festival was no different. Adrian Vega, a sophomore at Nueva Esperanza Academy, drew inspiration from not only his personal experience with loss, but also books and music to write his monologue about a brother seeking revenge and a mother's desperate plea to stop him. “I wanted to write a monologue to show people that having drug wars and people into drugs should be prevented especially from teenagers in our society.”
With the help of the Knight Foundation, we want our Young Voices to start a national conversation. Check out the video about Adrian's experience, and then watch “Payback” in action at the 2015 Young Voices Monologue Festival.
