Yellow Dress Project
Wednesday, Feb. 6, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence. The carefully constructed program stimulates thought-provoking discussion about relationships; a topic important to every young person’s life. Audiences are clearly moved by the story of a young woman who warmly tells us of her relationship that begins as young love, full of passion and promise — and ends in tragedy. The Yellow Dress play is developed and produced by Deana’s Educational Theater (DET). DET acts to prevent relationship violence by developing and producing comprehensive educational theater programs on relationship violence for grades K-12, colleges, the military, and communities around the United States and abroad. Mature Content: recommended for ages 13 and older. This program is co-sponsored by Wilton Teen PeaceWorks, Wilton Domestic Violence Task Force and Wilton Library. Registration required.
