YEN – SCHOOL PERFORMANCES

YEN comes at a pertinent time in the Australian political landscape. Within the last 12 months, the discourse surrounding women’s safety, the ramifications of sexual assault, the role of men, and the importance of teaching boys to respect women from a young age has become more prevalent. 

In an effort to continue the conversation and bring these issues to the fore, New Ghosts offered school performances throughout the season and a matinee performance for the general public, followed by a panel discussion with Associate Professor Rita Shackel of the University of Sydney; a graduate of law, psychology, science, and education. Joined by the cast and creatives of the production, the panel will discuss the themes, character interactions, and its importance in today’s context.
