The Danger of Hope Training is a DEI initiative that uses theatre, facilitated dialogue, and action planning to raise awareness among educators/mental health practitioners about the severity and impact of trauma on Black students.

Phase 1 introduces educators and mental health practitioners to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how to identify symptoms of trauma.



The  stage play contains strong language, due to its reenactment of high school students.

About the Play

The Danger of Hope is a one-person stage play showing the joys, pains, and struggles of Ms. Morgan, a newly hired Behavior Specialist at a Detroit public high school. When hope begins to crack open her students’ hearts and minds, Ms. Morgan’s office might just be the most dangerous room in the entire school.


The play is a part of a professional development module that uses theatre to facilitate discussion for educators and mental health practitioners focusing on symptoms of trauma among Black youth.
