Ripped

FULL LENGTH: Lucy goes to college. Lucy brings mace. No need for Lucy to actually use it, right? But something happened that wasn’t supposed to happen. Or did it? Oh well, Lucy must be having that quintessential college experience: drinking, boys, and being completely decimated by the people she trusts.

    This play is very relatable for girls of most ages. From the harassing and being afraid of being followed late at night to the sexual assault, sadly most girls have been affected in some way like that. The main character is strong and helps to give eye-opening situations to all who read.

    This play is so impactful to realizing the life of a female and the struggles that are encountered. The confusion is so accurate and portrays the trust issues many women are left with due to sexual assault encounters. This play is so important for women to read, I am a woman myself, and it still opened my eyes to things — such a thought-provoking read.

    This play is so important and resonated profoundly with me as a woman. The brilliant structure keeps the audience on the edge of their seat and fully present in each moment. The crisp and real dialogue is so refreshing. Most importantly to me- this play gets at the truth about sexual assault and the experience of being a woman in the world- the fear, the societal conditioning that our bodies are not our own. It does it in a gripping and visceral manner that begs a radical and transformative discussion about consent.
