SPOILED rips open secrets of gender based violence from the male point of view, revealed by an ensemble of women. The performers weave together a tapestry of stories from around the globe in an attempt to understand what drives such destructive behavior. In taking back the narrative, the ensemble breaks through taboos that silence women's’ voices.
The production contains mature themes not suitable for audience members under 14 years old.
