About the Play
Presented by Deana’s Educational Theater (who also brought us “The Yellow Dress”), “The Party” explores the relationship between three characters, Jordan, Kyle and Allie, who are in college and enjoying campus life: Parties, games, and “hooking up” become a regular part of college life until one night something goes horribly wrong.
Audiences watch as the characters who once were friends become caught up in a scenario where hooking up becomes sexual assault.
Using an imaginary remote control device Jordan stops, rewinds, and replays various scenarios while the actors incorporate the audience’s observations and suggestions into the action of the play.
