This groundbreaking theater event takes an in-depth look at the impact of rape culture on the lives of young people with back-to-back performances of NOW THAT WE’RE MEN and SLUT: THE PLAY. Inspired the real experiences of high school students. Featuring the award-winning teen ensemble of The Arts Effect.
From the writer and director of SLUT, comes a new play exploring the impact of rape culture on the lives of young men. In the weeks leading up to prom, friendships will be put to the test…because Andrew must be gay, Marcus knocked-up his girl, Nick’s a little too addicted to fetish porn, Derek’s falling in love with Kelsey, and Evan downed a handful of pills and pushed a hook-up too far. Hey, it’s high school. Time to “man-up,” right?
SLUT: The Play is back for its longest run in NYC! Come check out our powerhouse new cast and hang out after the performance for a Talkback and Q&A with The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company members, writer and director Katie Cappiello, and director Meg McInerney.
