The Danger of Hope
by Morgan Breon
The Danger of Hope (formerly THE W.I.T.CH.) 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.
Featuring Morgan Breon in a tour de force role as she portrays an array of characters in the public school setting including: a behavior specialist, students, teachers and administrators.
