BWW Recap: Coincidences Don't Exist for INTRUDERS
by Courtney Henley - Aug 30, 2014

Last Saturday, BBC America achieved its highest-rated Saturday evening on record, thanks to “Doctor Who” and a little new show called “Intruders.” The latter's premiere episode, which netted about 1 million viewers in total, was a lot to handle. I get that. But if, like me, you managed to get past (or even, dare I say, enjoy) the convoluted storyline and kitten murders (RIP Loopy), you were likely running to BBC America's website to watch the second episode. Those questions need answering! (more...)

Ridgefield Playhouse to Screen THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE, 9/26
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

The Anonymous People is the groundbreaking independent film about the emerging Addiction Recovery Advocacy Movement released last year. This feature documentary looks for solutions to the problems of addiction. About 23.5 million Americans live in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma and mass participation in widely successful anonymous 12-step groups have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum created by this silence has been filled by sensational mass media depictions of addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Filmmaker/director Greg Williams, along with special guests, will be on hand to show his film and share his own addiction experiences with the audience as he participates in a Q&A at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, September 26. The enlightening evening starts at 6:00 - 7:15 p.m. with a Silent Auction;?7:30 p.m. Live Spoken World Performance from Kinetic Effect of Michigan;?8:00 p.m., Film Screening,?9:00 p.m. Q&A with filmmaker. This event is underwritten by The Ridgefield Prevention Council Family University to benefit the non-profit Mission of Connecticut Turning to Youth and Families and is part of HamletHub's “A Whole New You Series”.
