When is a tornado not a tornado? What twists a man into something he despises? Hamlet’s question “To be or not to be,” resonates deeply in Lauren Gunderson’s Natural Shocks and our companion piece, What Happened to Men. 

Join us for a storm of insight and healing. Ticket sales to be shared with Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center.

About the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center:

Since 1982, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center has been helping individuals and families impacted by domestic violence. What first began as the compassionate mission of several volunteer parishioners of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newburyport has grown into a nationally recognized nonprofit organization serving adult and child survivors of domestic violence from Newburyport to the Merrimack Valley; and providing tools and strategies to reduce domestic violence homicides across the country. In addition to our domestic violence support services and trainings, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center offers Youth Empowerment Services (YES), which educate students how to lead conversations about healthy relationships, recognize signs of an abusive relationship, and become empowered to make positive and healthy decisions. The mission of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence. For more information, visit www.jeannegeigercrisiscenter.org or call the 24-hour confidential hotline at 978-388-1888
