About the Show
Everything is Fine is an award winning Highmark Sponsored program that follows the story of a girl whose picture perfect romance turns from bad to worse. The audience witnesses her struggle to understand and escape the unhealthy relationship that has developed. Meanwhile, she watches two people who celebrate each other and have a healthy relationship. They encourage her to find a guy who respects and honors her. Through this vivid portrayal, inspired by a true story, students don’t just hear but see the warning signs and consequences of dating violence.
In August of 2007, 16 year old Demi Cuccia, a cheerleader at Gateway High School, was brutally murdered by her boyfriend for trying to end their relationship. This unthinkable act rocked a community who thought that something like this could never happen to them.
Shaken by Demi’s death, the Prime Stage Teen Board took it upon themselves to write a play that spoke about the warning signs and danger of teen dating violence.
This must see play is written by and performed by teens. What better way to understand teens than hearing and seeing their words in action.
On September 17, 2011 Jodi Cuccia and the Teen Board members who wrote the Everything is Fine script were interviewed live on KDKA's Johnna Pro's Radio Program.

A fully developed one-hour presentation, three Q&A options, student handouts, resources and statistics information, and parent information handout.
Why are there three Q&A options and what are they?
Each performance has three Q&A options available to best fit your students. You may choose from a regular Q&A immediately following the show with the large group; small Q&A with break out sessions; or a Q&A held in gym, health classes or homerooms. The cast will join the small or large groups to answer questions and talk with the students about the severity of dating violence and how to build a healthy relationship.
How much does it cost to bring this program to my school?
The full program costs $700. However, we will gladly discuss options to help lower the cost or how to get the program sponsored.
When can I get Everything is Fine to come to my school?
