Someone like me

The question that formed the foundation for analysis and creation of this adaptation was: What does it mean to be normal?
Four teenagers are admitted to the Orot Mental Health Center. They sleep together, eat together and create a play together, focusing on the soul, of course. "Someone like me" provides a sneak peek into the closed ward, the lives of these four teenagers and their story, which is really the story of us all. They ARE us, just at a different level of excitement.
"Someone like me" is for all those who have a soul. It involves the healing powers of the theater with the hope of elevating the level of compassion, which always seems to decline.
