Rhiannon Faith presents

Smack That (a conversation)

Thu 31 May, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: Pay What You Can , approx running time: 80mins no interval

Age: 18+

Beverly is having a party and you are one of her guests. Expect games, dancing, humour and a very raw and honest account of domestic abuse.

Each member of the all-female cast, a close-knit group of non-performers and dance artists, fearlessly takes on the persona of Beverly to convey turbulent, real experiences. The unusual setting creates a safe space for them to reveal the challenges they have faced and celebrate their endurance with the audience. Faiths work with a support group at charity Safer Places underpins this show, which seeks to raise social consciousness around domestic abuse by supporting women to openly talk about it.

 

Smack That (a conversation) is set at a party and celebrates human resilience and survival. The show shines a light on the subject of domestic abuse and as such, discusses themes of an adult nature, sexual violence and domestic abuse.

During the show a break-out space will be available to audience members, providing a safe and calm environment for anyone affected by the subject matter. A qualified therapist will be on hand to provide short term support and re-direction to other services as required. This room is a short walk from the Theatre and is signposted. A (venue) host can show you the way. You will be able to re-enter the performance whenever you’re ready.
