Synopsis

'Hoods is the gang-slang word for "neighborhoods," the turf that each gang intends to control at any cost. The one-act play is meant to inform—and to frighten. Along with alcohol and other drugs, promiscuous sex and AIDS, teenage street gangs are the greatest plague to hit America ... ever. Science is helpless with this new plague. Where is the cure? Enlightenment is part of the answer. Turning the spotlight on the horrors of these new "diseases" will help remove their glamour. Why should joining a gang be such a thrill when—if you change your mind—there's virtually no way out except death? The answer seems obvious: "Forbidden fruits are sweetest." The desire to please friends and be "one of the crowd" is irresistible. The fear of being a nerd or a geek or a goody-goody is devastating. The plague will stop only when greater fears and desires are substituted. Jerome McDonough's plays, like Addict, Juvie, Dolls and Alky, are effective in building greater fears and desires. Your theatre's spotlight can be focused on the horrors of joining gangs by mounting 'Hoods on your stage.
