‘The Yellow Dress’ Play About Teen Dating Violence, Domestic Abuse at Darien Library
Thursday,Feb, 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Darien Library and The Darien Domestic Abuse Council, Inc. bring the Yellow Dress to Darien to raise awareness and educate our community about Teen Dating Violence and Domestic Abuse.
About the Play
The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence.
Speaking in an intimate and honest monologue, Anna describes her relationship that started out as young love full of passion and promise that ultimately ends in tragedy.
This carefully constructed play allows the audience to learn about the cycle of dating violence.
The audience watches as Anna describes the different types of abuse that she experienced, the effects that abuse has on the victims of dating violence, and how difficult it is to leave an abusive relationship.
The Yellow Dress was written by Deborah Lake Fortson and originally produced by Sydney Patten.
