The SummerWorks Performance Festival
Playwright: Wendy Krekeler
Director: Wendy Krekeler
Pia Bouman: Scotiabank Studio Theatre
August 7th, 2014 – August 10th, 2014
The Devil You Know was selected at the Toronto Regional Showcase (Hart House Theatre) of the Sears Ontario Drama Festival to perform at SummerWorks. You will forget you are watching high school students as these young actors take you through this horrifying, heartbreaking story.
Rachel is an incest survivor and is trying to come to terms with the abuse she suffered at the hands of her older brother. Her story is revealed to the audience through her therapy sessions, flashbacks and monologues from other incest survivors. The play is based on a true story and contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for some audiences. (summerworks.ca)
