Selfie

Young People's Theatre

Written by Christine Quintana
Directed by Stephen Colella
Based on the original French language version

The first party of the school year comes packed with expectations. It’s a time to renew old friendships and perhaps find new love. But what happens when an incident shatters the connections between three friends? Teenage relationships are complicated enough – especially when you add the reckless power of social media. This smart and intense play delves bravely into the nature of sexual consent.

Performance being offered in the following formats:

ASL Shadow Interpreted Performances:
American Sign Language (ASL) Shadow Interpreted Performances are specifically designed to provide access to YPT shows for audience members who are Deaf, deafened or hard-of-hearing.

Relaxed Performances:
Relaxed Performances are well-suited to all young audiences and have been established to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). They can also be a good introductory experience for first-time theatregoers. The performance itself is unchanged, but there is a more relaxed attitude to noise and movement. The house lights in the theatre are also adjusted, so that it is not quite as dark as usual. There are also additional supports before and during the show including a designated relief area that can be used throughout your visit to take a break or watch the performance on video.

As part of this initiative, YPT has created a video as well as a Visual Guide that provide a detailed description of what it’s like to visit the theatre. Patrons often find it helpful to review these with the young people they are bringing, prior to attending a performance.
