“Behaviour” by Darrah Teitel
August 31 @ 12:00 am EDTFree
Get ready for a re-broadcast of Behaviour, written by Darrah Teitel and directed by Emma Tibaldo!
On August 31, 2021, we will be showing a theatrical reading of Behaviour on PWM’s YouTube channel. This reading of Behaviour was organized with the Segal Centre for Performing Arts and broadcast live earlier this year.
Behaviour is the story of Mara, a woman who seems to be living her dream: she has a career in politics where she is making a difference, and she’s in love with an artist who challenges norms. But what lurks underneath is devastating. With humour, precision, and unrelenting honesty, Behaviour probes at what we accept as normal. The play challenges our acceptance of existing structures, exploring the interplay between power and abuse. Behaviour reflects the world as we experience it, where speaking out against sexual abuse is the abnormal act.
“One of the smartest plays to respond to the #MeToo movement”
– Kelly Nestruck (The Globe and Mail)
“One of the most important, powerful, traumatizing, and simply essential plays happening right now.”
– Ryan Pepper (Capital Critics Circle)
“Behaviour unsettles and forces us to question ourselves and our compliance with existing structures.”
– Patrick Langston (ArtsFile)
Behaviour premiered at the Great Canadian Theatre Company, co-produced with SpiderWebShow. The script was developed in collaboration with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal through a variety of programs, including the Gros Morne Playwrights’ Residency.
This is your chance to watch Behaviour if you missed or to watch it again if you loved it!
