Lost in the fun of a great party, Ashley is sexually assaulted at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, Trip. She spirals downward as her best friend doesn’t understand what she’s going through and her mother blames her for what happened. Follow Ashley and her community as they grapple with how to handle the situation.

Discover what you can do to help a friend.

The play will run August 30 and 31, in the outdoor breezeway of Newins-Zeigler Hall. The audience will move around the space with the actors to follow the story through live action and video.

After each performance, the audience will participate in an interactive discussion and debriefing focusing on the question: “What constitutes a sexual assault and when should I intervene?”
