“FREE READING : IN YOUR HEAD, a Forum Theatre Play on Mental Health in Schools
After the glowing response to IN YOUR HEAD from schools across the GTA, we are happy to announce that we will be bringing it back for the 2019/20 school year!
We are hosting a FREE reading of the play for educators, students, and school-involved mental health professionals.
This year, audience members at the reading will have the opportunity to conduct Forum Theatre “interventions” by taking the place of actors and attempting to change the outcome of the play.
Where: The Ladies Parlour (main floor of St Luke’s United Church), 157 Carlton St, Toronto ON M5A2K3
When: October 23, 2019 at 5:30pm
RSVP by clicking HERE!
IN YOUR HEAD takes us into the lives of Rayna and her brother Sam as they deal with the increasingly complicated world of high school and “growing up.” Why is Sam suddenly having a hard time at home and in school? How can they be there for one another? Is there anyone else that can help out?
Written by renowned playwright Luciano Iogna and directed by MCT Artistic Director Simon Malbogat, this interactive Forum Theatre show will specifically focus on the stigma against mental disorders and engage students in a dialogue on how we can all be better mental health allies to each other. Like all our Forum Theatre productions, this show is inspired by real stories from teens to ensure that our play reflect the issues that matter the most to your students.
