“The Outrage”

“The Outrage has changed my life. I did not know what an abusive relationship was until “The Outrage,” and then I realized I had been in one. I want to prevent what happened to me from happening to others.”  - Maggie, age 17

 

“The Outrage” is an educational theatre performance piece that addresses the topics of teen dating violence and sexual assault in a candid, yet sensitive manner. High school students present current statistical information and depict realistic dating situations. Following the 20-minute performance, the high school student actors answer questions from the audience.

The information presented is valuable to any person who knows, or is, a teenager. One in five high school students reports being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner. Fifty-four percent of parents admit they have not talked to their child about dating violence.
