Provocation

Theatre production at The Guild­—Nov 23 to 25

Produced by the PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Centre, Provocation: A Play will be on stage at The Guild in Charlottetown with performances November 23 and 24 at 7:30 pm, and November 25 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm.

In September 1981, four women met for lunch at the Confederation Centre 1964 Club in Charlottetown, PEI. Each woman was distressed by an act of sexual violence that had been brought to her attention that week. 

Provocation: A Play is a grassroots production paying homage to the women who, through grit, tenacity and resilience, founded the PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Centre in 1982.

Directed and written by Candace Hagen, 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.
