Stop Dating Violence | The Yellow Dress

Audience Age: Grades 11 – 12

College & Military Version Available

The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence. The carefully constructed program stimulates thought-provoking discussion about relationships; a topic important to every young person’s life, especially now with dating violence becoming a serious social issue throughout our school systems. Audiences are and will be clearly moved by the story of a young woman who warmly tells us of her relationship that begins as young love, full of passion and promise — and ends in tragedy.

Written by Deborah Lake Fortson and produced by Sydney Hayes Patton
