We're delighted to let you know that we have an excellent addition to our ILG sponsored conference - New Vic Borderlines<New%20Vic%20Borderlines>, the award-winning initiative using theatre in social context, will be performing their new play 'Love Hurts?' This new project sensitively and appropriately explores the nature of teenage relationships, the power dynamics which exist in all relationships, and challenges a culture where 'love' may be expressed through manipulation, exploitation and abuse both physical and online (more below).
The delegate fee is £50 for ILG members and £80 for non-members.
