In As Bad As They, Jordan Ternin tries to decipher the fine line between her impulses to help and control after her brother Caleb decides to quit using. This play is set in present-day Bloomington, Indiana—in the midst of the Midwest’s opioid-heroin epidemic. The play begins with the estranged lives of Caleb and Jordan. The siblings are reunited on the most dangerous day for an addict, the day he’s released from state custody. On this day the dosage that Caleb handled comfortably two weeks before could cause his death.

As of 2015, about 1 in 37 adults in the US were under some form of state correctional supervision like jail, probation, parole or house arrest. These are common penalities and pretrial conditions for people dealing with drug offenses. From 2007 to 2015, the correctional population declined by more than half a million people. Who knows what the future holds. So for everyone who can't get out that night, the play will stream live on this website.
