This spring I will be directing A Bad Night by Nicole Pandolfo and Amy E. Witting for the Waltzing Mechanics' Documentary Play Festival at The Frontier Theater in Chicago. This play is incredibly powerful. The text is sourced from and inspired by interviews with survivors of acquaintance rape. The play gives a voice to unheard, under represented, and silenced true stories that beg the incredibly important question, what is consent?
