Faculty and staff are invited to a free performance of the play “Really Really” to consider if the production is an opportunity for curricular and co- curricular conversations on sexual violence.
The play is described as a “quick-witted and gripping comic tragedy about ‘Generation Me” and it contains adult content including sexual situations and sexual violence.
Director Craig Ellingson noted that, “we are staging this play because it shows the challenges that we all face in life. It is a beginning of a conversation on very personal, difficult subjects.”
In addition to personal choices and individuality, the play includes one perspective regarding sexual assault—the occurrence, those involved, others impacted, and events that may follow. To ensure that those in attendance receive factual, supportive community information, post show panel discussions will be hosted with representation from Fargo Moorhead Rape and Abuse Crisis Center, MSUM Sexual Assault Services, and MSUM Title IX Coordinator. Speakers will answer questions from the audience and address various aspects of sexual assault. Read the rest of this entry →
