The 2019-2020 Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective season opens with a world premiere by new playwright Jamie Knox. A family struggles, each in their own way, to deal with the sickness of one of its members, while coping with inconvenient troubles in their personal lives. We watch their story unfold in flashbacks and real time, revealing the complexities of their characters and a secret that brews just below the surface. When the secret is revealed, it is more damaging than they could have imagined, and we are left unresolved and needing the conversation that follows in the audience post discussion. This provocative piece of storytelling explores how easily physical intimacy can be misconstrued as emotional intimacy and how consent can be assumed wrongly. The Education of Ted Harris is a World Premiere.
