t's a "powerful" play no mat-
ter when and where it is per-
formed. At Berkley High
School, the timing couldn't
be better.
The Girl in the Mirror, a play
by Bruce Jacoby which focuses
on teen suicide but offers a pos-
itive message, will be present-
ed by Berkley students at 8 p.m.
March 3-4 in the school audito-
rium.
Each school year, Berkley
students perform a musical, a
drama and a comedy. The mu-
sical Once Upon a Mattress was
presented in December and a
comedy will be staged in May.
Berkley drama and English
teacher Helene Dworkin, who
directs the shows, says she
chose The Girl in the Mirror for
this year's drama partly be-
cause many students at the
school are still recovering from
the Dec. 1 suicide of 15-year-old
sophomore Daniel Kellerman,
who lived in Huntington
Woods.
Mr. Kellerman, a moss-coun-
try runner at Berkley, was a
member of Temple Emanu-El
and he attended Camp Tama-
rack many summers.
A special performance of The
Girl in t Mirror is planned for
the scho 's sophomores to be
followed b a session with psy-
chologists. ,
"The play is a wonderful,
powerful, dramatic vehicle
which demonstrates that while
theater is entertainment, it also
can teach," Ms. Dworkin said.

3 MYTHS ON BEDWETTING

1. IT IS A BEHAVIORAL PROBLEM.
Wrong! A child should never be punished for
night-time bedwetting. It is basically a sleep
disorder.
2. YOUR CHILD WILL OUTGROW IT.
Probably not. Many suffer into
adulthood continuing the heartache and
humiliation.
3. THERE IS NO EFFECTIVE CURE.
Wrong again. At the Enuresis Treatment
center we have been treating bedwetting
for 14 years and we have a success rate
of 95%. Without drugs or surgery.

The message of
The Girl in the
Mirror is simple:
"You face many
choices along the
road, and the best
choice always is
life," Ms. Dworkin
said.
The play cen-
ters around Su-
san, a 17-year-old
girl who has just
attempted suicide
and is in a coma.
Through a charac-
ter called, "The
Speaker," the au-
dience sees how
Susan misread
situations which
led to her action
and takes a look
at what would
have happened
had her suicide
been successful..
Sophomore ac-
tress Shoshi
Utchenik, who
turned 16 this week, had at-
tended school with Mr. Keller-
man since second grade and
knows his family. A Hunting-
ton Woods resident, she por-
trays Dr. Allen, a psychiatrist
who talks to Susan's boyfriend
during the segment which fo-
cuses on the ramifications of her
"death."
"At first, I was concerned
about getting involved with the
play," said Ms. Utchenik, who
has appeared in three previous
Berkley productions. "I needed
to talk to Ms. Dworkin to make
sure of her intentions.
"After I spoke with her about
the play and heard some ex-
cerpts during tryouts, I was con-
vinced this was a good play. It's
more than just entertainment.
It can get through to people.
"I'm not sure this will help
students get over what hap-
pened, but it sure will be good
for those who have ever thought
about suicide."
Ms. Utchenik says many of
the some 30 students involved
in the production either knew
Mr. Kellerman or are friends
with students who knew him,
"and I think that's why there's
less joking going on during re-
hearsals. Everybody is taking
things very seriously."
Admission to The Girl in the
Mirror is $3 at the door. Ad-
vance tickets are available for
$2 from cast members or at
Berkley. For information, call
the school at 544-5850. ❑
