    PROJECT DAWN, a well-intentioned but dull play receiving its world premiere at People's Light & Theatre Company, is heavy with messages but short on drama. Playwright Karen Hartman has clearly done her homework on Philadelphia's Project Dawn Court, which aims to keep prostitutes out of jail and "off the Ave" through rehabilitation, therapy, and positive reinforcement.
