Control Freak

Understanding controlling behaviours and unhealthy relationships


It starts out with small things, like checking her text messages and suggesting she change the clothes she’s wearing before they go out.

However she soon finds herself with more than just an overly loving, passionate boyfriend – she finds herself trapped in an abusive relationship. This four-actor theatre workshop for Years 9 to 12 uses playbacks and student on-stage participation to revisit actions and their consequences in order to identify and address issues of controlling behaviour and domestic violence.

Topic: Controlling behaviours and relationship violence

Running Time: 90 minutes including student interactive participation.
