In Overdose, everyone but Brians deliberately clueless girlfriend thinks he is a self-absorbed playboy who is more concerned with the catch of the day than heeding his mothers warnings about the eventual downfall of his flighty lifestyle. His right-hand man, Mike, hides behind an outwardly jovial facade to mask a shameful family secret. Tyler, the most level-headed of the trio, is running from his past to build a better future. the skeleton in his closet could shake the fragile foundation of those around him. these mens negligence to stand up and fight their demons eventually corrupts those closest to them, including the younger generation and the women in their lives, women battling their own issues. the play Overdose is a gripping and provocative play that stresses the importance of preserving the fabric of America: the family. It calls men to take their rightful places as role models, mentors and fathers, while drawing attention to the family as a unit. When asked about her motivation to write Overdose, Smith replied, I want to write in such a way that people are shocked when they realize there is a method to my madness, a message amidst the staged chaos. With its witty repartee and heart-pounding intrigue, Overdose succeeds.
