Shoelace play examines teenage angst

UVic students and grads collaborate on theatre project

Navigating high school, bullies, depression and acceptance is all part of being 14. The Pink Shoelace, written and performed by University of Victoria students and grads, delves into these big topics through the story of five teenagers.

The play is part of the 2011 Victoria Fringe Festival. Two dollars per ticket goes to YouthSpace, which provides e-counselling, live chat and forums for Victoria youth in distress.
