DARK FIELD: TARRED AND FEATHERED (WT)
Research and Text Development completed.
The play will follow the story of non-offending pedophile ‘Adam’ (as featured on the podcast This American Life ‘Help Wanted: Tarred and Feathered’ by Luke Malone) and will raise the question whether child abuse could be better prevented through the use of treatment programs and a general de-stigmatization of non-offending pedophiles. The play intends to raise awareness of the existence of pedophiles who successfully manage their attractions and do not commit crimes against minors , in order to encourage greater access to treatment and provide greater protection for children.
A collaboration between director Rebecca Scott, playwright Charlie Dupré and dramaturg Thomaspeter Goergen.
Premiere: Theater unterm Dach Berlin
