Electric Company Theatre invites you to join us for an upcoming forum with Betroffenheit creators Jonathon Young & Crystal Pite, and Dr. Diane McIntosh (Psychiatrist, UBC Mood & Anxiety Disorders Program). The forum will explore the topics of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), addiction, and recovery, and will examine the ways in which these important social issues are expressed in the production.
