Theatre has the power to move, inspire, transform and educate in ways that no other art form can.
Off-Key Productions is committed to engaging students in conversations about the world we live in.
What She Said is an original one-act play that is appropriate for high school and undergraduate students and can easily be performed within a school period. It is a verbatim piece which explores a number of topics related to the Ontario high school curriculum including (but not limited to) health and physical education classes. What She Said encourages critical thinking as the young women on stage grapple with issues such as: gender, race, body image, sex and consent. Teachers of non-health and physical education classes have also commented on the relevance to their students whether the play related directly to their teaching material, such as the themes of various novels and short stories studied in an English class, or simply in terms of "life skills."
Our production and workshops are highly adaptable and we are happy to create a visit that fits the individual needs of your students. In past school visits, we have included a post-show Q & A with each performance and have run verbatim and physical theatre workshops for drama students and let post-show conversations with students in leadership positions.

“A very powerful performance that dealt with relevant and serious subject matter in a very honest and mature way. The students in my class were very impressed and appreciated the performance and messages the play explores.”
