One night…four close friends…alcohol…flirtation…and a conflicting story. Find out what happens when one friend accuses another friend of rape. Who is telling the truth? This situation will be portrayed in Playrights–One Night, an interactive play about acquaintance rape. The play is performed tonight at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the SUB II Ballroom.

One Night is an original theater program, featuring four professional actors in a powerful story about rape among friends. In an engaging and interactive presentation, the actors will answer a variety of questions about rape. What should you do if a friend tells you she was raped? Would a friend rape a friend? If alcohol is involved, is it rape? When does seduction end and rape begin? Why are women reluctant to report rape? Why should men be concerned about rape?

At critical points in the plot, the actors will stop the action and remain in character while audience members ask them questions.
