You The Man

You the Man is a theatre-based program that highlights how bystanders can interrupt cycles of relationship violence and abuse. The program comprises a 35-minute play followed by a panel discussion with local experts from the community. Please allow 90 minutes for the program.

The one male actor portrays 5 different male characters dealing with and responding to domestic violence or sexual assault. Through gentle, non-blaming dialogue, the play acknowledges the complexities of dealing with domestic and sexual violence but clearly spells out for the audience the impacts and the responsibilities of such violence.

The panel discussion following will include representatives from local service providers, who will address the issue of relationship violence from a local perspective and share key information on access to local help services.

You the Man has been successfully used in a range of settings across Victoria including secondary schools (years 8-12), tertiary education institutions, sports clubs, workplaces and communities.
