Opening near Valentine’s Day

This show is called Smack! and works will address Valentine’s Day theme. Smack is a slang term for “Kiss” as “Smack on the lips” which, being a Valentine’s Day themed show, is the implied definition for the show’s title. Smack can also refer to a “Hit” or a kind of “Slap” as being “Smacked in the head.”

It also could imply a bright and perhaps cartoonish use of imagery which “Smacks” you visually.

“Smack” is also of course a slang term for “Heroin” which, like love, can be an extremely addictive substance.

I'm sure that there are a few other associations, but I think these are the main ones.

Most of the works in the show will embrace some of the darker and more complex aspects of love but it’s not necessarily a requirement.
