2. Big Ten New Play Initiative: Good Kids

When: Friday, February 27, 2015 7:30 PM - Saturday, March 07, 2015 7:30 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Kay Theatre
Event Type(s): Theatre Performance

UMD has partnered with the Big Ten Conference schools to create a new playwriting and performance
initiative. Known as the Big Ten Theatre Chairs, the group will commission, produce and publicize new plays in an effort to influence the national dialogue about women.

The program's first commissioned work, Good Kids by Naomi Iizuka, explores a casual sexual encounter gone wrong, and its very public aftermath. Who is telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? What does that say about you? This play responds to actual events that went on to generate a national dialogue.
