A live journalism theatrical experience that asks: Why don’t anti-bullying strategies in Hamilton’s schools work?

About this event

Three journalists ask why anti-bullying strategies in schools aren’t working. Harmed in Hamilton, a live journalism experience brought to you by stitched! Live journalism lab, explores the deep rooted and systemic reasons behind ineffective anti-bullying strategies that can end up putting children last.

Harmed in Hamilton has three journalists, Sonya Fatah, Christin El-kholy, and Maddy Mahoney, pursue this question with journalistic vigour, interviewing teachers, academics, advocates, and of course, the students themselves. Working with Choreographer Louis Laberge-Cote and Director Lisa Cox, they’ve created a theatrical experience that will bring you journalism like you’ve never experienced it before.

Tickets are $10, and $8 for students. Pay-What-You-Can tickets are available with no questions asked. The event will take place for one night only on Monday, June 4th, 2022 at 7pm in Theatre Aquarius. Doors open at 6pm. The event will be followed by a voluntary short discussion between the performers and the audience.


Written and performed by Journalists Sonya Fatah, Chrsitin El-kholy, and Maddy Mahoney, and directed by Lisa Cox. Choreography by Louis Laberge-Cote and performed by Janeyce Guerrier. This production led by stitched!, a live journalism collective that is dedicated to creating multi-disciplinary live events to the stage based off of journalistic works. The event is co-produced by Talk Media, with Adam Chen serving as production coordinator, and Kit Simmons as stage manager.
