Using Interactive Theater to Educate About Domestic Violence - The Jen and Steve Skit

2012 National NOW Conference

Saturday, June 30, 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., Upington Room

This skit, adapted from the Spruce Run domestic violence project in Bangor, Maine, uses the audience as community members interacting with an abused woman and her abusive husband. The actors will then dispel some of the common myths relating to domestic violence. Participants can adapt and perform the skit for their own communities. This skit includes cursing and simulated violence; it is not recommended for small children and adults may leave during the performance if necessary.
