“Credible…balanced…theatrical.  Highly recommended.”
Claude Dorge, CBC Radio

“Edgy, daring and relevant.  Talk about your teachable moment…very powerful…very necessary.”   
Principal of Windsor School



Relevant… Powerful… Drama. A timely and essential exploration of a drug for which we have laws but no values…

Concrete is thrilled to bring back their most popular teen production to Junior/Senior Highs once again.  Last seen in Alberta in 2008, Smokescreen is a riveting exploration of adolescent drug culture and the clash of values between Trent, a charismatic high school student and the adults in his life over the damaging impact of his marijuana use and abuse. 

Themes: Addictions: drug abuse, dependency and dealing, decision-making and influences, societal values, personal values. Communication: with friends, with family, emotions. 

Study Guide Available.

Curriculum Ties: CALM: wellbeing and respect, conflict resolution, relationships, making change; Health and Life Skills: wellness choices, safety and responsibility, relationship choices. Family violence, bullying, life strategies, support.

60 minutes with a 5-10 minute Q & A.
Base Price: $815
