Provocation: A Play

In September of 1981, four women met for lunch at the Confederation Centre 1964 Club in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Each woman was distressed by an act of sexual violence that had been brought to her attention that week. Provocation is a play that honours 40 years of grassroots labour by those who built the PEI Rape and Sexual Centre through grit, tenacity and resilience. The play spans from 1981–1997. Through interviews and submissions from over 20 Island sexual violence prevention activists, four fictional characters—Mary, Theresa, Kimberly and Cindy— weave the story of how through strength, revolution, and ferocity, PEI’s first and only Rape Crisis Centre came to be. Celebrate 40 years of healing, empowerment and prevention at Provocation: A Play
