'Sex Ed. What Wasn’t Covered' theater production begins Nov. 14
"Sex Ed. What Wasn’t Covered," a theater production written and directed by Britt Burr, drama therapy graduate student, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14, 15, 16 and Dec. 1 in observance of World AIDS Day. All performance will be in the Purple Masque Theater in 103 East Stadium.
The performance is free, with donations going to AIDS research. There is a sneak peek of the performance on YouTube.
Through the interviewing process, Burr found as a community, individuals were firmly and solidly educated on the safe sex practices regarding heterosexual intimacy, but it was not until early — and even late — adulthood that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning individuals are educated in the matter of safe same-sex practices. This production will shine light on the need for such education within schools.
A "talk-back" — where the audience has a chance to meet the cast and crew and ask questions — will follow each performance. A guest speaker also will be present each evening during the talk-back. They will provide their own perspective or stories as well as opinions revolving around the performance.
Please spread the word to colleagues and friends about attending.
