Lou is in the Vaults bar, they’ve got some thoughts about their date. Jaz is in the smoking area ready to explain. Presenting three sides of the truth, the audience will be split into intimate groups to hear one monologue before they come together to look through peep holes at the date, finally separating again to hear the second perspective. The production poses questions about who we should trust when one party believes it is sexual misconduct and the other simply a bad date.
How do people miss the signals of someone withdrawing consent? Inspired by the Aziz Ansari scandal, Madeline Gould and Joel Samuels have both written monologues for characters on a date without conferring. A novel way of creating theatre, this process will emulate the discrepancies in memory when two people recount the same experience.
