Keeping Children Safe on the Internet

Square Chapel Centre for the Arts in Halifax are excited to welcome a new play about porn, parenting and pressure this February.

Punching the Sky tells the true story of an 11 year old boy’s experience of stumbling across brutal online pornography. This very personal account, written and performed by his mother, shines a light on the extraordinary public and media response to a Blog Post she wrote about the experience in her attempt to reach out and make sense of what felt like a monumental failure as a parent. This play combines live performance with animation and an original score and explores the complexities of our relationship with pornography, the dangers and redemptive qualities of the internet, and the contradictory nature of our feelings about sex, censorship and parenthood.

We would very much like to hear your thoughts and/or experiences with this, or similar issues.

If you wish to catch Punching the Sky at Square Chapel, you can see it Friday 26 February at 8pm. For more info and to book please call our box office on 01422 349422 or visit our website:
