Photo Flash: Company of STET Celebrates Opening Night at Abingdon Theatre Company
Abingdon Theatre Company recently celebrated the opening night of STET, a new play which has extended its Off-Broadway performances through July 10. Written by Kim Davies and developed by Kim Davies, Jocelyn Kuritsky and Tony Speciale, STET is produced in association with The Muse Project. Artistic Director Tony Speciale directs the world-premiere drama inspired by the Rolling Stone article "A Rape on Campus." Scroll down for photos from opening night!
In STET, a young journalist is assigned to write about sexual assault on college campuses and must find a unique angle for the article that will sell. During her investigation, she encounters a student with a horrific story to tell. Determined to bring the events to light, this ambitious reporter refuses to let anything stop her-including the truth.
Post-show discussions with journalists, survivors of sexual assault and members of the creative team and cast are scheduled for Sunday, June 26 (with Katie Koestner, founder of Take Back the Night); Tuesday, June 28 (with journalist Claire Gordon and activist Gloria Fortuna); Wednesday, June 29 (with author Angela Carter); and Thursday, June 30 (with writers Amanda Duarte and Eliza Bent and activist Kathy Moran). Additional talkbacks are to be announced.
STET includes scenic design by Jo Winiarski, lighting design by Daisy Long, costume design by Hunter Kaczorowski, sound design by Christian Frederickson, projection design by Katherine Freer, and casting by Karie Koppel. Production Stage Manager is Deidre Works. Emma Feiwel is Associate Producer.
