Domestic Abuse

In 2012 TVO began a domestic abuse project. Like all our projects the goal was to explore behaviour and help people come to a better understanding of themselves and their situations. The project has resulted in us working in prisons, refuge centres and safe houses, secure children’s homes, universities and colleges. We have also performed the play, 'til death do us part, with talk back sessions for the public in theatres and other public venues.

'Til Death Do Us Part

A play developed using Theatre of the Oppressed Techniques by Jennifer Hartley.

As in all TVO work the play has a social purpose in this case to explore conflict in relationships.

It is a two-hander and the actors speak directly to the audience. Lasting an hour long it can stand alone as a performance or can be followed by a discussion.

Audience comments have referred to its powerful, direct impact; how it makes you think about behaviour in relationships and what triggers it. Those involved in working in the area of managing conflict in relationships feedback how useful it was to get the perspective of both sides.

As a result of the production we are now been able to offer workshops with specific groups and organisations.

We are now touring the play and able to bring it to your area either as a stand alone performance or as part of a broader training package with specially designed workshops and seminars.
