Concrete Theatre specializes in professional plays for young adults and children. Offensive Fouls, intended for ages 14 and older, explores racism in a thought-provoking examination of cross-cultural relationships. The story mixes the drama of a high-school couple conflicted by violence and prejudice with dollops of humour to address tough social issues while keeping adolescent audiences riveted. Co-presented with the Centre for Race and Culture, which hosts a Q&A after the show, Offensive Fouls uses theatre to teach values of respect and community with more punch and insight than Hamlet, who only used theatre to steal fake-skull props.
