Seeing Rape includes performances written by John Jay College men and women undergraduates. This work represents sexual violence and envisions sexual justice in new and nuanced ways.
Nine mini-plays take up this challenging topic in contexts as varied as prison, the home and a group therapy session. The performance lasts about an hour and will be followed by a discussion between the audience, police officers, assistant district attorneys, advocates, and other service providers. We hope to have a reception afterwards, where student attendees will have an opportunity to talk informally with criminal justice professionals, actors, and playwrights.
Our aim is to cooperate with colleagues at John Jay to create a student-centered model college rape prevention program that has the writing of John Jay College undergraduates at its core.
