Seeing Rape: This is America
April 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Seeing Rape: This is America is a performance written by John Jay College students. This group of men and women playwrights represents sexual violence in their own words, dialects, and languages in engaging and novel ways. In short plays, the way rape intersects with hyper-masculinity, the opioid epidemic, the workplace, immigration at the Southern border, and dating will be examined through drama. Join us for what promises to be some of the most innovative theater with many of the most talented actors in NYC. There will be a discussion with actors, playwrights and special guests immediately following each performance.
Generous financial support for this year’s program has come from John Jay College’s Student Council, the New York City Council, and many John Jay College academic departments and centers, including President Karol Mason’s office.
