On April 6 and 7, seven youth who are currently in Portage Prévost’s Aftercare Program gave two performances of their interpretation of “Willy Protagoras enfermé dans les toilettes,” an award-winning play by Lebanese-Québécois writer Wajdi Mouawad. The play tells a story of adolescent rebellion, and deals with problems that are often encountered and overcome by the young people in treatment at Portage.
Since January, the youth have been involved in every aspect of bringing the project to life. It has been an opportunity for them to practice what they have learned at Portage and to work as a team. Portage is grateful to the Fondation Québec Jeunes for making this project possible.
