Behaviour by Darrah Teitel
Mara’s life is normal. She lives in Ottawa, has a good government job, a handsome partner, a new baby boy, and everything appears fine on the surface. Appearances can be deceiving. A play about the abuse of power, political expediency, and the masks we wear to carry on as if everything is as it should be.The play would like to answer this question: Will an audience recognize drama up until a woman who has been raped for seven years decides to acknowledge that rape?
