Darknight Productions will present “You Don’t Know How It Feels” as part of the Dream Up Festival at Theater for the New City - an honest and daring look at a student who is sexually assaulted by her teacher. The hope is to further the dialogue that will help end the stigma surrounding this crucial issue.
Who can you turn to when trust is betrayed? Dena and her friends love Mr. McCoe, he is the coolest. After Dena’s sister dies, he listens, helps her bring up her grades and prepare to try out for the basketball team. He manipulates the power dynamic so that her family, friends, teachers and school administration are not aware of the dark turn their relationship takes. This is a forthright and caring exploration of a young woman’s story reminding us how important it is to pay attention.
This play contains sexual violence, assault and abuse. It is not suitable for children under the age of sixteen.
