About this show

Forty days, 7 angry girls, 1 reluctant teaching artist... Set in an all-girls residential facility, Count Down follows a teaching artist as she attempts to break down the barriers of a group of neglected young women through a creative process. With a focus on the problems encountered by young girls in this country, and in particular young female victims of abuse and neglect, the play illuminates the serious social ill of domestic violence and demonstrates the role of the arts and artists in helping girls recover from the horrors of abuse. Count Down is a fictionalized account, inspired by playwright Dominique Cieri's experiences over the last 15 years working as a teaching artist with many groups of at-risk youth, including abused and neglected teenage girls.
