This is a theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities.
Jane Doe goes to a party. She gets drunk. She blacks out. She is raped.
Karin McCracken (Body Double and Mrs Warren’s Profession) leads a public reading of a rape trial transcript, where audience members read as witnesses and lawyers, and feed in live responses via their phones.
Interwoven with frank and funny documentary footage with young people from across America, the UK and Aotearoa, Jane Doe is a revelatory and carefully crafted discussion on consent, feminism and sexual empowerment.
Jane Doe is still touring in the US after originally being conceived there, and had a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017.
R16: this show discusses sexual violence in depth, and includes graphic descriptions of sexual violence.
