#consent                     Now – April 15                   

Various Venues

It’s a look at responsible sexual behaviour and it’s a show being geared to teens. #consent was created by Sum Theatre in response to the ongoing discussion sparked by the #Me Too and #Time’s Up movements that have dominated headlines. The play is designed to look like a feed on Instagram and combines music, poetry, photos and memes to explore the topic of inappropriate sexual behaviour. This play is meant to spark discussion for teens and their families and give them the tools to understand. This show will be toured to high schools here in the city and there will also be public performances, all free to the public.
