Women's Health & Wellbeing Barwon South West is pleased to present 'You The Man', a thought-provoking play about dating violence that addresses bystander intervention and prevention, followed by a stimulating panel discussion.
The one-actor play portrays six characters, highlighting how bystanders can interrupt cycles of relationship violence and abuse.
The panel discussion following will include representatives from local service providers, who will address the issue of relationship violence from a local perspective and share key information on access to local help services.
"We are all bystanders - we can all help create stronger and safer communities" - Don't miss your chance to find out how!!!
***Please note- performance is recommended for people aged 15 and over***
Comments from previous adult audience members:
“Exactly the type of program required to really help to stimulate open discussion of the issue”
“Community is bombarded by media stories – but this format helps people take on the issues”
“[The play] raises many issues and many questions which lead to great conversations”
“[The play and discussion] seemed to impact people on a personal level – I got the impression most could relate to either one of the characters or some of the moral dilemmas explored”
