Details:

Whack!

A young woman, Angelina Napolitano, axe murders her husband in his sleep. The subsequent trial resulted in the first use of the battered woman defense in Canada. Though Angelina had suffered years of extreme physical abuse at the hands of her husband, an all-male jury convicted her of murder and the judge sentenced her to hang. A world-wide public outcry ensued, and the Canadian government finally commuted her sentence. Whack! tells this story in a series of fast paced, kaleidoscopic scenes that are at once gut wrenching, gripping, and always fascinating.

Cost: $25

Location: The Bruce Hotel, Stratford, 89 Parkview Drive, Stratford
