A documentary theater piece about a drunk driving incident from 2015 that hit way too close to home. By retelling this story in a visceral way, I hope to inspire others to make the decision not to drink and drive. This piece will also investigate whether car crashes caused by drunk drivers should be described as "accidents.”
