BWW Review: The Preciousness of Life in Beckim's NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY Photo BWW Review: The Preciousness of Life in Beckim's NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY
by Kristen Morale - Oct 8, 2019

In NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY, Chad Beckim shows how a young woman's addiction to opioids affects not only her, but those who seek to help her. Impeded by her own doubts and insecurities, in a town where people are admired for their efforts to leave, the downward spiral of her life pulls in those who had the good intent of helping her. Relationships are pushed aside, hope is dashed and free will momentarily shines through in her attempts to get better, only to be swallowed up again by need. Beckim's play is an extraordinary story of ordinary people - a family already familiar with less-than-perfect circumstances, now faced with a loved one's illness that seeks to bring down everyone with her.
