She wanted it.  Did she say “No”?  She was drunk and out of control.  She deserved it– did you see what she was wearing?  The guys wouldn’t need to force her.  Why did she have condoms in her bag?  She prides herself on being a slut.  
 
One Friday night, 16-year-old Joey Del Marco parties with three of her best guy friends…and her world comes tumbling down.  In a culture where silence, judgement, and slut shaming allow sexual violence to thrive, will Joey find support and justice?  When past choices and actions are used against her, will her voice be heard?  How will one night forever change not just Joey, but her whole community?

 

“Katie Cappiello’s powerhouse script examines the double standard that celebrates sexual activity by boys but denigrates it for girls. The girls’ realistic dialogue makes the audience feel as though it were sitting in the gym locker room, overhearing painfully intimate conversations… Insightful look at the sensitive issues of rape and cyberbullying with heartfelt performances from the impressive all-female cast. ” – Time Out New York

SLUT is truthful, raw and immediate. See this play and witness what American young women live with everyday.” – Gloria Steinem

SLUT pulses with the fierce voices of the girls who created it. This is an exceptional play that looks you straight in the eye and tells you what it means to grow up female and sexual in a world marked by double standards and violence. It sparkles with insight and scenes of heartbreaking truth that you won’t see anywhere else. Slut should be required reading for every educator, parent and girl.” – Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl.
