Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. Something she says she can’t remember. Something everybody at school is talking about. Was she raped? Did she ask for it? How could those boys do that to her? Or did they? Set in a high school in the American Midwest in a world of Facebook and Twitter, smart phones and YouTube, Good Kids explores a casual sexual encounter gone wrong and its very public aftermath. Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you?
A conversation with members of the cast, the Women’s Resource & Action Center, and the Rape Victim Advocacy Program followed the performances.
This production was part of a rolling premier commissioned by the Big Ten Theatre Consortium.
