Theatre of the Beat presents: “I Love You and It Hurts”

September 11 @ 7:16 pm - October 1 @ 4:00 pm

Theatre of the Beat is proud to present “I Love You and It Hurts.” This series of three short plays reflects lived experiences of elder abuse, healthy masculinity, and intimate partner violence in youth relationships, with a focus on how to recognize the subtle early signs of abuse. The topics chosen were identified by our community partners (experts at Assaulted Women’s Helpline and Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region) as topics that need to be immediately addressed. THE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE At the end of each play, the audience will have the opportunity to make suggestions to the actors to change the outcome of the scenes or jump into the scenes themselves. Using the Forum Theatre model, this interactive element allows audiences to “rehearsal for reality,” learning skills and resources for how they can make a difference. Crisis workers will be present at each performance. This production will be presented at the Kitchener Public Library Theatre (85 Queen Street N, Kitchener Ontario) on: Friday, September 29th at 7pm Saturday, September 30th at 2pm Saturday, September 30th at 7pm Sunday, October 1st at 2pm Admission is by donation!
