The Yellow Dress is a powerful one woman play that stimulates a thought-provoking discussion about relationships. It tells the story of a young woman who is involved in a relationship that begins as young love, full of passion and promise and ends in tragedy. The play will help students identify the warning signs of abusive behaviors, understand the unique aspects of dating violence, learn how to help friends and family members, and develop community awareness of the issue.
The Yellow Dress program is produced and directed by Deana’s Educational Theater, a non-profit organization based in Wakefield, MA that uses theater as a way of educating audiences of all ages about dating violence, bullying and promoting healthy relationships. Deana’s Educational Theater was established in 1994 after the death of Deana Brisbois, a young woman from Topsfield, MA who was a victim of dating violence.
The program consists of a 30 minute performance followed by a 30 minute interactive discussion with the actors. All members of the Olin, Babson, Wellesley, and Needham community members are welcome to attend at no charge. Funding generously provided by the Honey Dew Foundation Grant.
