About the Government of Alberta’s support of 2018’s Consent:

Stephanie McLean
Minister of Status of Women

On 2012's Smokescreen:
“Our youth LOVE it and the staff did as well! The play was so well done - excellent acting and background research. They really captured the essence of a parent in distress, a youth in search of self, and a youth worker doing her best to help get to the bottom of the issues."
Rebecca McCaffrey
Program Coordinator, Old Strathcona Youth Society

Control Alt Delete, is an emotionally charged new play by award winning writer and improvisor Jana O'Connor (CBC’s Irrelevant Show) exploring cyber-bullying through the eyes of three teens set in the theatrical world of a carnival side show. Led by a ringmaster who may or may not be the Internet himself, the play, which was commissioned by Concrete Theatre with support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, explores issues of online safety, sexuality and sexual coercion and personal responsibility and care.
