Smokescreen by David S. Craig
An exploration of values and of truth and denial between father and son with the adolescent drug culture as a backdrop. The story centres on a savvy, charismatic but troubled young man named Trent Dolin. who has been convicted of trafficking marijuana and as the play begins, he arrives for an appointment with Rayzee deGruiter, a newly minted youth care worker assigned to 'easy cases'. Rayzee slowly strips away the layers of justification that support and mythologize adolescent marijuana use.
