THE PHONE CALL, a forum theater play based on the technique of Augusto Boal. Jointly commissioned by Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr., Bronx District Attorney Robert T. Johnson, the Office of Violence Against Women, and the Bronx Domestic Violence Consulting Council, the play has been performed throughout the city since its premiere in Fall 2006. THE PHONE CALL enacts dramatic scenarios drawn from the testimony of real-life survivors of domestic violence. Members from the audience get to learn about the options they have to overcome and help others triumph over domestic violence; determine the best course of action under different circumstances in dialogue with peers and legal experts; and take action on behalf of safety and domestic justice. In THE PHONE CALL, you get to intervene directly into the action by replacing any of the actors on stage and working out a solution.
