Sexual assault has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind this year from Brock Turner to Harvey Weinstein and beyond.
But, it’s not a new subject.
In the play Is Anybody Listening? we explore not only the horrific trauma of sexual assault but also the aftermath in how lives are completely changed.
Playwright Tracy Goodwin chronicles the lives of 5 women who have experienced sexual assault and are now in a recovery facility trying to put their lives back together.
In this play, you not only hear real stories of the victims Marty, Tammi, Sidney, Donnelle, and Sheila but you see them put the pieces back together of their lives while trying to navigate a narcissistic psychiatrist, an intern that borders on sexual harassment and their own combativeness against each other.
Is Anybody Listening? is a play that brings to life the after effects of this horrific trauma and has the potential to change the trajectory of how assault is viewed and acted upon.
Is Anybody Listening? is available for tour in 2018
