On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The IndyFringe Festival, for the most part a lighthearted, wacky event, this year will shine a light on the sober topic of manipulative teen relationships.

The festival has added a play called “don’t u luv me?” by Linda Daugherty, to the lineup. The play, which will be performed by Young Actors Theatre, explores how signs of affection can morph into controlling abuse through text messages.

Young Actors will partner with IndyFringe and Start Strong Indy, a program of Clarian Health; the Ruth Lilly Health Education Center; the Domestic Violence Network; the Metropolitan School District of Washington Township; and Sonar Studios.

(Start Strong is a national program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that teaches people ages 11 to 14 about healthy relationships.)

Daugherty, a prolific children’s playwright, will visit Indianapolis Aug. 5 for a preview at the IndyFringe Theatre, 719 E. St. Clair St.

The IndyFringe Festival runs Aug. 20-29.
