Theatrical Performance at AWC for Domestic Violence Awareness MonthYuma, AZ -October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and
AWC/ NAU-Yuma Violence Prevention Program is raising awareness by bringing to the community the theatrical production, CONTROL.ASSAULT.DELETE, written by John King and directed by David Barker. The performance will take place on Saturday, October 16 at 5:00-6:30 pm at the Arizona Western College Theatre.
CONTROL.ASSAULT.DELETE is a one-act dramatic performance depicting a typical young woman as she enters college with high hopes and plans to fulfill her dreams and then meets her abuser who controls her life and ultimately ends all hopes of her ever achieving those dreams. This presentation will touch your heart as you see the things this young woman experiences in her quest to find happiness, save the man she believes loves her and finally, as she frantically seeks to save her own life.
The purpose of this work is to:
(1) Point out common mistakes made by parents and friends in their frustrated attempts to help the victim escape the abuse.
(2) Bring to light common tactics used by abusers to trap victims into a rigidly controlled relationship.
(3) Point out to abusers the pain and misery they bring to the lives of others through their actions.
