Title of play:  darklight, by Lindsay Price

 
Summary:  darklight creatively illustrates the characteristics of anxiety and depression through the lens of teens.  Characters fight their inner thoughts, search for their truths, and expressively represent the experience of both anxiety and depression.  Ultimately, it's a search for hope and victory over very real and relevant struggles of the modern teenage experience.  Contains mature themes.
