Cleveland Public Theatre
Professional Theatre

By: Tlaloc Rivas

Show Description:
Inspired by the true story of Johanna Orozco, a Cleveland teen who survived a gunshot wound to the face by her boyfriend in 2007 and whose story sparked a nation-wide movement against teen domestic violence. Johanna’s story is complex and raises critical questions, but it is also a life-affirming story of triumph. Based on The Plain Dealer’s award-winning series “Facing Forward” by journalist Rachel Dissell and produced in conjunction with Teatro Publico de Cleveland.
