Jewish group co-sponsors ‘The Yellow Dress,’ one-woman drama about domestic violence

The Jewish Alliance to End Domestic Abuse (JAEDA), a program of Jewish Women International, along with the Pinellas County Domestic Violence Task Force (DVTF) are presenting a performance of The Yellow Dress at the St. Petersburg College, Clearwater Campus Auditorium on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m.

This one-woman show is based on the experiences of women who were victims of dating violence or sexual assault.

The Yellow Dress, a presentation of Deana’s Educational Theater, is a powerful play that tells the story of a young woman who is involved in a relationship that begins as young love and ends in tragedy.

The play is meant to help viewers identify the warning signs of abusive behaviors and suggest ways to assist friends and family members who may be in an abusive relationship.

“JAEDA believes that this powerful production gives the audience accurate information, tools for intervention and reinforces the concept that verbal, emotional and physical violence are never acceptable in any relationship,” said Chairperson Ellen Woll.

Lissette Campos of ABC Action News will serve as emcee, and The Real Clash Band will perform.

The program is free to all students with a valid student I.D. and is especially appropriate for those in high school and college. Other adults are also welcome. Cost is $10 at the door (cash or check made out to JWI). Reservations are requested by Monday, Oct. 16, via email to

Additional sponsors are: Hands Across the Bay, Julie Weintraub; The Manny and Ruthie Cohen Foundation; The Tampa Bay Rays; Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services (GCJFCS); The Clearwater Chapter of Jewish Women International; St. Petersburg College, Clearwater; Done Right Documents; The Doug and Maureen Cohn Foundation.
