This skit is hosted by the Scattergood Friends School as part of their Peace Camp. The interactive skit is adapted and used with permission from Spruce Run domestic violence project in Bangor, Maine. Using audience member participation to create scenarios where community members simulate interactions with an abused woman and her abusive husband provides attendees an intimate look at Domestic Violence within a community.
*** Please Note: The skit includes cursing and physical violence against objects, with simulated violence against women. For this reason, the program is not recommended for small children – adults should exercise self-care when deciding whether or not to attend and may leave during the performance if necessary. The Domestic Violence Intervention Program will have an advocate present for support of attendees. ***
