    Harvardwood Heads To... Award winning play, SHADES

    Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 07:00 PM · $39.00 USD

    "Love, secrets, shadows: Light awaits those brave enough to raise the shades."

    SHADES won the Inaugural Pen contest for new plays from Pen & Brush/NYC, and the Best New Play contest of LDI Productions in LA.

    “The play truly shines. All of these characters carry with them hidden insecurities, wants, needs, and inner demons that emotionally bubble under the surface from the very start, while at the same time keeping the charm and sense of humor that we all share only with our closest loved ones. Exudes family love and harmony in the midst of tragedy and pain.”
    Life in LA

    “fully formed…skillfully constructed play unfolds compellingly, its low-key suspense piquing our interest as we grow curious about what the characters are withholding from us — much as in life off-stage…. Caplan has a knack for particularizing that documentary vividness.”
    Providence Phoenix

    Harvardwood Heads To... DR. FEELGOOD: DEALER OR HEALER? Screening + Q&A with Director Eve Marson '04

    Monday, January 02, 2017 at 07:15 PM · $12.00 USD
    Cinema Village in New York, NY

    From Dec. 30th - Jan. 5th, Cinema Village in NYC will be screening documentary Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer? Visit https://www.cinemavillage.com/ for exact screening times and tickets.

    And if you can make it to a screening on Jan. 2nd, the 7:15pm showing of the documentary will be followed by a special Q&A with Director Eve Marson '04.

    Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer? is the story of Dr. William Hurwitz, a preeminent pain specialist sentenced to 25 years in prison for drug trafficking, providing a window into the ethical dilemma of opioid prescriptions. The film traces Dr. Hurwitz’s trial and eventual appeal, detailing the events that lead to his arrest. Testimonies from the witnesses in Dr. Hurwitz’s case contradict one another—some revere him, while others condemn him. Taken together, their accounts reveal a profile of a compassionate yet flawed doctor. The film, in telling his story, underscores the tension between every patient’s right to pain relief and the lawful need for drug control.
