At an elite university, when the party of the year results in the regret of a lifetime, one person will stop at nothing to salvage a future that is suddenly slipping away. A hard-hitting drama that embraces the harsh reality of today’s youth.
This performance contains a scene which includes a graphic depiction of rape and sexual assault that some audience members may find disturbing and is not suitable for younger audiences. The School of Stage and Screen presents this play as a fictional telling of a very real and frequent occurrence and does not condone sexual violence in any way, shape, or form.
