The girls are still in a haze after a wild New Year's party. This might explain why there's an elephant in the room that only Talia can see. Or is that just the mysterious man from Apt 2E?
"What it means to be a part of rape culture is a very important issue in the media right now, especially on College campuses." - shares playwright Anna Fox - "While this play does not take place on a college campus, it does focus on three young women and how they each deal with the aftermath of sexual assault, both their own and each other's."
Starring Emily Altschul, Sam Dash, Leila Teitelman and Samantha Fairfield Walsh.
