CAMPUS LIFE
Play to raise
awareness of
sexual assault

Performance to
work with campaign
to prevent assault
on college campuses
By EMILIE PLESSET
Daily StaffReporter
In light of an increased
nationwide focus on preventing
sexual assault on college
campuses, the University's School
of Music, Theatre & Dance will
premiere Naomi Iizuka's new
play, "Good Kids." The production
will be in conjunction with the
University's broader Expect
Respect: Flip the Script sexual
assault prevention campaign -
which itself is a part of the Big Ten
Theatre Consortium's New Play
Initiative.
The performance will play
during the first two weekends
of October at the North Campus
Arthur Miller Theatre.
The Big Ten Theatre

Consortium will put on the play
at all Big Ten schools in an effort
to address the issue of most plays
being predominantly male centric.
According to Assistant Theatre
Prof. Gillian Eaton, the show's
director, the Music, Theatre &
Dance School in its history have
only performed nine plays written
by women.
"There just aren't that many
plays by women, for women, with
big parts for women and about
women's issues," Eaton said.
"That's why this consortium was
put together."
The Expect Respect: Flip the
Script initiative will address
sexual assault prevention on
campus. In addition to the play, the
initiative willinclude a widespread
social media campaign to get the
message out. All students and
faculty involved in the play will
receive sexual assault bystander
intervention and sexual assault
prevention training through
the University's Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center.
