“Neighbors” an original play written, directed and performed by Julia Lasker, a 2017 graduate from Acton-Boxborough MA regional high school.
In May of 2017 Julia Lasker, along with seven of her classmates, performed an original play that combined the real life stories of four Neighbor Brigade clients from different towns in Massachusetts whom we had helped over the years. As part of her senior project, Julia interviewed the clients and then created an original play that creatively intertwined the lives of our four clients and made a clear statement about the power of paying it forward. The play was performed as a fundraiser and to bring awareness to the important work of Neighbor Brigade in our communities.
Those who attended the production shared with us that they laughed, they cried and they left inspired to help their neighbors because you never know when you might need that help in return. We thank Julia and her classmates for leaving us all inspired to do more!
