IT’S WOMEN’S PLAY presents OFFENSIVE TO SOME 3/3 7 PM ET
OFFENSIVE TO SOME On Demand (Available 3/4 – 3/10)
Canada’s PerSIStence Theatre Company presents OFFENSIVE TO SOME, the award-winning play written by Bernardine Ann Teraz Stapleton. Part of this feminist theatre company’s one-woman play series IT’S WOMEN’S PLAY, MIRANDA MACDONALD plays the Woman, in prison for killing her husband – a man who has abused her for years. Her journey as a wife, mother, daughter, but most of all as a person, unfolds in her interactions with unseen cops and a parade of talk show hosts. “Sadly, bringing focus to violence against women continues to be relevant,” says Jenn Deon, PerSIStance Theatre’s producing artistic director. “It’s easy for people to assume that domestic violence is something that only happens at a distance. I think that ‘Offensive to Some’ illustrates how easy #metoo continues to happen in a society that still doesn’t do enough to support survivors.”
