The subject of sexual assault is a very sensitive topic, and unfortunately, a universal one as well. The play focuses on a victim’s reactions to an assault and it poses questions about the nature of the aggression and what comes next.
This is a very powerful play with a strong theme that will leave the audience talking long after the final act.” The play has enjoyed worldwide acclaim and has even been adapted into a successful motion picture starring Farrah Fawcett.
