The Strangest Dream

The annual Listen Up! youth theatre troupe toured Lanark County and Smiths Falls youth centres and schools in April of 2019 with a new play about body image, The Strangest Dream.


Based on research and conversations with young people and in consultation with the Hopewell Centre – Eastern Ontario’s only clinic dedicated to working with those dealing with eating disorders – the show is being staged at a time when teenagers especially face a barrage of images in print and electronically that make them question their self-worth and can lead to harmful behaviours.
