He Loves Me, He Loves Me not
He Loves, He Loves Me Not is written from authentic voices and lived experiences of coercive control in teen relationships. Lexi is a fifteen-year-old girl, desperately trying to navigate her world that is pressured by social media and bombarded by generational trauma thrust upon her from yesteryear. But when one man enters her life, she is thrown into a whirlwind of manipulation drugs and coercive control.
It is a hard-hitting story of how a girl and her community are preyed upon and gutted through county lines drug trafficking with Donnell, making chaos look like a walk in the park.
Written as a response to creatively engage teens, reluctant to access professional services for domestic abuse and coercive control. Directed by Lee Grant, written by Anthea Cribbin and performed by the young people of Gorse Hill Studios.
