Jane Doe on Tour

Jane Doe banner

Touring Colleges, Universities, and High Schools Across USA since November 2015

I helped director Eleanor Bishop revamp the original Steubenville production from CMU to create a 60-minute touring version of the show. It is now being used as an educational workshop at colleges and high schools across the country, and is available for booking!

From the websiteJane Doe is a participatory theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities.

One performer leads a public reading of a rape case trial transcript where audience members read as witnesses and lawyers, with pauses for the audience to text in their responses which are projected live. The hard hitting trial is interwoven with frank and funny filmed documentary interviews with young people from across America and New Zealand reflecting on sexual empowerment, consent and feminism, which are virtuosically voiced by our performer live in sync with the projected video.

Jane Doe can be performed in theaters, classrooms, conference rooms, or lecture halls for audiences from 30 to 500 people.

We travel to your community to interview people from your audience and these filmed interviews are included in the show. We engage with local sexual violence experts to conduct talkbacks after the performance.
