CTRL-ALT-DEL 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 3 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.

Appropriate for ages 12 and older

About the Government of Alberta’s support of 2018’s Consent:
“Theatre and story-telling are powerful ways to connect with teens, to learn about positive relationships and become respectful partners. I am proud to partner with Concrete Theatre on this creative approach to preventing sexual violence in Alberta.”
