A One Man Show by John Morello

Co-sponsored by CONNECT to End Violence, a program of Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, the MV Regional High School, and the Youth Task Force.

Dirt is a one-man show that explores the challenges and decisions that young people face every day. Dirt gets to the heart of issues related to drugs, bullying, and self-esteem in a manner that resonates with audiences in a real and meaningful way.  Through the portrayal of relatable and memorable characters, John Morello gives voice to those who sometimes feel as though they are not heard and reassurance to those who sometimes feel as though they are not understood. John does not preach, teach, or lecture; instead, he takes students on a journey that challenges them to think about the choices they make and how those choices impact their own lives and the lives of those around them.


"I've been teaching for 30 years and this was by far the best presentation I've ever seen for our kids. The students were mesmerized and I could tell they really connected with everything he was saying." - Teacher, Lenox, MA

"I thought I was the only one who was going through all these things and now I realize I'm not alone. And maybe there's hope"Student, Chicago, IL

Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School: 
We believe that MVRHS should develop the heart and the mind of all of its students.  In order for students to be prepared for college and life, they need a strong academic background and a set of socio-emotional skills that make them adaptable, healthy, employable and happy.  Our school strives to provide students with the learning experiences and a school culture that promotes this.
The Youth Task Force mission is to reduce substance use and other risky behaviors by promoting community-wide health and wellness for youth and families through a cooperative integrated network of youth, parents, health practitioners, health and social service organizations, public officials, educators, law enforcement officers, and other community members.
CONNECT to end violence, a program of Martha’s Vineyard Community Services:
The mission of CONNECT to end violence is to reduce domestic and sexual violence on Martha’s Vineyard by changing the social norms through education, advocacy, and community mobilization, and providing crisis intervention services including advocacy, counseling, and support services for victims.
