Jane Doe goes to a party. She gets drunk. She blacks out. She is raped.
Using the power of theatre and storytelling, Jane Doe reflects on rape culture in our communities.
Writer and director Eleanor Bishop and performer Karin McCracken, present a carefully crafted discussion on consent, feminism and sexual empowerment. The show weaves frank documentary footage of young people from across America, The UK and New Zealand with a reading of a rape trial transcript.
You can join in if you want as a reader; or feed in live responses via text, as the production unravels. In any case, you will find this a most engaging show that has been highly acclaimed.
