SLUT: The Play

Giving the signifier "Recommended for audiences 13 & up" entirely new and necessary resonance, SLUT (The Play) is a devastating cross between a locked-room mystery and a he said/she said tragedy. Inspired by the true-life stories of its cast members, who are still in their teens, it's the story of a 16-year-old girl sexually assaulted on a hazy and drunken evening. She struggles to have her side of the story told, even as she's shunned and slandered. Developed by New York City's Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company, written by artistic director Katie Cappiello and co-directed by Cappiello and managing director Meg McInerney, it's a look into the conflicting, confusing world begat by the word "slut." It's as much about what the audience believes defines a slut as it is the problems with those perceptions. Desire and damnation: They're both here, concepts as seething and palpable as the cast members before you. Co-presented by the Hammer Museum and Equality NOW.
