Writing on the Wall tells the shattering story of coeds at a prestigious college who claim to have been sexually assaulted. They declare the names of the perpetrators by writing them on the library restroom wall; their words glowing with fury. The play is presented amid today’s climate of increasingly frequent sexual assaults on college campuses and mounting challenges to Title IX. Each performance will be followed by a talk-back session exploring the multiple issues raised in this important and timely piece.
Net proceeds will support the work of Day One and One Billion Rising. A semifinalist for the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Award, Day One partners with youth to end dating abuse and domestic violence. One Billion Rising is the world’s largest international campaign to end violence against women and girls. It was founded by Eve Ensler, our original collaborator.
