Nov. 08 - Nov. 18
Wednesdays-Sundays

Amber and Tom are two freshmen at Princeton struggling to find their way. They spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? Actually investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.

For MATURE AUDIENCES

Director's Note:
This play is not a political soapbox. Ziegler doesn’t just pay lip-service to the important issues of consent and the way our culture thrusts negative projections onto women and African-American men. The personal cost on these two people are measured moment by moment. This play is an antidote to the way we process events in the Internet age. Our social media (and such) has rigged a destructive form of dialogue around important issues which require a more sensitive, subtle, complex treatment to find progress and understanding. This progress requires a fuller, unguarded acknowledgment of the pain inside our fellow human beings. This takes practice. This play is a chance to practice this with a community.
