“Every single thing leads to everything else…” Amber and Tom, finding their way as freshmen at Princeton, spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? A playwright The New York Times calls “newly (and justly) hot,” Anna Ziegler investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in and the three sides to every story.
A grant from The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation is providing support for this production of Actually as well as increased opportunities for high school and college students to experience it and to take action on the issues it presents.
