    A painful, sobering reconstruction of an everyday, recurring trauma and the fractured, splintering reflection that becomes a means of survival.

    Bublitz crafts an impeccable, crucial structure to tell this story. The use of the dress is outstanding - it tells us about time and so much about character. A truly thought-provoking piece on consent and rape culture, people should see it.

    Powerful, challenging, thought-provoking play. The non-linear timeline creates a layer of doubt that really challenges the audience to reconsider their preconceived notions about the definition of rape, their idea of consent, and the double-standards women face that prevent them from reporting when they know the unthinkable has happened.

    And so true that once raped, sex is cheapened. Once loss of self-esteem, it's easier the next time. That's what women look like, I'm not sure about the men. This is the college scene enhanced (if that's the right word) by drinking, after hours walks with rape dangers, and, above all, crushed expectations. Expectations aren't always good, but surely young people deserve more than this. Please report date rape and please prosecute so this doesn't become a farce.

    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.

    I was lucky enough to attend a reading last week at The Road Theatre and this play is so important! Bublitz manages to start a conversation on rape culture while also shedding light on some of the often overlooked but common symptoms of a society that has normalized rape culture. I also appreciate that the topic is handled with such care while also making certain aspects murky enough so that the audience is left to challenge their own biases. Would LOVE to see this in a season with How I Learned to Drive and scripts of the like.

    I normally wouldn't bother to recommend a play that already has 25 recs. This play is so potentially frightening for theatres that I have to speak up and say, yes, it is precisely because this play is so frightening that it is so important, so now, and so necessary. Please, please consider this play. Rape is complicated. Memory is complicated. We still need to fight rape. We need to have this discussion. This play advances the discussion and does so sensitively and boldly.

    What appeal to me about this script are two main things (after the solid storyline): the realistic and simple dialogue for these very real characters, and the non-linear nature of the script itself. The organization of the scenes will likely be a challenge for a new director, but I think the script itself is solid enough to ensure it is generally accessible for all theatres. I can see this as a college production or as a community theatre piece and believe it is very timely. Highly recommended.
