Actually

By Anna Ziegler
Directed by Johanna Gruenhut
October 17 – November 18, 2018
At Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater in the Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle
1101 6th St SW, Washington, DC

Tom and Amber, freshmen at Princeton University, seem to be on the same page about where their relationship is heading, until suddenly they aren’t. What begins as a casual hook up turns into a Title IX hearing in which both students have everything to lose. Tackling the highly charged topic of sexual consent, this provocative new play by Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51) investigates the intersection of gender and race in campus politics today, offering a nuanced and psychologically rich portrait of a generation.  Featuring Sylvia Kates and Jaysen Wright.

The Los Angeles Times raved: “Gripping. Beautifully rendered and complex…destined to trigger discussion.”

Your tickets will be available for pick up at Arena Stage one hour prior to your scheduled performance.
