The play “Two Blue Lines”
Teenager Vita Mayer is horrified to discover that she has become pregnant. She is faced with a difficult choice of what to do. Abortion or keeping the child? In a sea of questions that bother her and to which there are no answers, she feels alone.
The play “Two Blue Lines” was created with the aim of raising the awareness of young people about the importance and necessity of responsible sexual behaviour in the prevention of underage pregnancies. It premiered on Thursday, September 27th, at the Exit Theatre. In the first season, a total of 30 plays were performed in front of young people from the area of central Croatia, with one guest appearance in Montenegro.
The play, intended for final grade primary school and secondary school students, parents and educators, and educational workers, openly discusses the issue of underage pregnancies through the story of a teenager Vita, who, after learning she is pregnant, faces a decision that will change her life forever.
The play was co-produced by the Full House Theatre, the Exit Theatre and the Sisak City Theatre based on motifs from the novel of the same name by Rosie Kugli. The project partners are the Parents’ Association “Step by Step”, the Croatian Society of Writers for Children and Youth and Lelo Hex, and it is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, the City Office for Culture of the City of Zagreb, and the City of Sisak.
After each performance, a conversation is organized with the audience on the topic of responsible sexual behaviour and experiences from one’s own life or environment. The conversation is led by psychologists Silvija Stanić and Iva Buconjić, members of “Step by Step” association with many years of experience working on the prevention of risky sexual behaviour of young people and providing assistance to minors and young parents.
The play is primarily intended for performance in front of students, and we invite you to share this information with your teachers, professional associates and colleagues and visit the EXIT THEATRE!
