DUTY TO WARN by Teresa Stankiewicz
Sunday, May 31st @ 6:30 PM
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.
Life is crazy as usual for Melinda who is a type A personality with a
thriving veterinarian business. She juggles animal patients and their
owners along with her dysfunctional family with authority and aplomb. Her sister
Loretta, is a young mother with bipolar disorder who is struggling to be
heard. The police, the hospital and others all make their required calls as
Loretta spirals out of control. Melinda learns a tragic lesson when the
authorities call her in their duty to warn.
