Wendt Center for Loss and Healing Ensemble

Voices of Now Wendt Center Ensemble is a free drama and writing program for teenagers ages 12-18 who have experienced a death-related loss. This opportunity is provided by Arena Stage, D.C.'s oldest, largest producing theater, in collaboration with The Wendt Center for Loss and Healing.

Voices of Now Wendt Center Ensemble members rehearse weekly with professional theater artists and grief counselors at Arena Stage to create an autobiographical play that explores their personal experience with grief.

A premier resource for restoring hope and healthy functioning to adults, teens and children who are coping with grief, loss, and trauma in the Greater Washington region.
