THINKIN’ IT OVER (Now in its 10th Year!)

VOICES OF VIOLENCE
Voices of Violence explores the many forms of violence and bullying (physical, psychological, sexual, domestic, racial, and others) that people face in their homes, schools, workplaces, and in society at large. “Voices of Violence” is designed to meet the needs of schools and other organizations by providing you with a range of pieces to choose from in order to create a targeted and effective 50-minute presentation comprised of monologues, scenes, and spoken word/presentational pieces that matter most to your students and staff.
Written by award-winning playwright and artist–educator Joey Madia, New Mystics plays have been thoroughly researched, and are based on interviews with adults and young people and intensive workshops with theatre company members.
