Stage Play Confronting Issues In The Church; Addiction

Stage Play Confronting Issues In The Church; Addiction

Norcross, GA -- (submitted by Andre Knighton) 

Never has a stage play addressed issues facing church members like ADDICTION: No One Knows but Me.  "I want to bring to the forefront issues that confront church members everyday-issues that nobody wants to talk about but know are there" says Andre Knighton play wright and producer.

Andre believes it is time for the church to take off its mask and do away with being pretentious."We all know the catch phrases, ' I'm blessed and highly favored,' and 'Too blessed to be stressed' but most of that is a facade and the real issues are not being addressed," says Knighton. He believes that having that kind of attitude makes a person feel alone and or isolated as if they are the only person struggling with a particular issue.

"We need to be real and understand that everybody struggles; Knighton passionately expressed. It does not make you any less spiritual. It makes you human.
