Handle It - A One Woman Play (NSW)

Monday, 16 February 2015 to Saturday, 21 February 2015

As relationships between young women and men are impacted more than ever before by the expanding world of the internet, seven "Gen-Y" characters battle with evolving ideas of relationships and sexuality.
Are we becoming desensitised?
Are we just bodies?
Are we safe?
The real question is: Can we handle it?

“Handle It – A One Woman Play” is the creative product of emerging playwright and performer Laura Jackson, and centres on the story of Kelsey Armitage, an eighteen year old university student who experiences first hand the effects of social media on the lives of young women. 

“Brilliantly written and acted, this show is a thought-provoking and entertaining examination of dominant discourses about the internet, violence against women and contemporary society itself.” Emily Dash, 2014

“Not for the faint of heart, Handle It is an avant-garde reflection on the sexual health of generation Y.” Brooke Clarke, 2011

"An ingenious twist drew a couple of gasps from a pin-drop silent audience."
Peter Burdon - The Advertiser
