On 2012's Smokescreen:
“Our youth LOVE it and the staff did as well! The play was so well done - excellent acting and background research. They really captured the essence of a parent in distress, a youth in search of self, and a youth worker doing her best to help get to the bottom of the issues."
Rebecca McCaffrey
Program Coordinator, Old Strathcona Youth Society

As we know from so many stories and headlines in the news… sex isn’t just about anatomy, but about individual rights, gender equality, personal conduct and respect.

After a confusing sexual encounter, a young couple must grapple with the emotional aftermath. Was there consent? The passionate discussion that follows opens up an exploration of sexual consent and what it means for both parties involved. An important and relevant new play from award winning playwright Mieko Ouchi (I Am For You) created to help students understand the legal definition of consent, identify whether or not a person has been the victim of a sexual assault or has purposefully or unwittingly victimized someone else, and prepare themselves to be responsible, caring and respectful partners.

Appropriate for age 13 and older
