RIPPED - Lucy

Salt Lake City, Utah

PLAY DESCRIPTION

Lucy goes to college. Lucy brings mace. No need for Lucy to actually use it, right? But something happened that wasn’t supposed to happen. Or did it? Oh well, Lucy must be having that quintessential college experience: drinking, boys, and being completely decimated by the people she trusts.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present                        

Situation: Lucy has just returned to college after a traumatizing visit home for Thanksgiving.

Subject Matter: Consent, Date Rape, Rape Culture, Alcohol, Friends, College

Note from Playwright: I wrote RIPPED to create a play where the nuances of consent and rape could be examined in the gray zone. What happens when you can't register an event as traumatic, even after it's destroyed you?

Supplemental Information: To read the Full-Length Play RIPPED, go to Rachel’s New Play Exchange page https://newplayexchange.org/users/275/rachel-bublitz

RIPPED has its World Premiere Production with Z Space and will go on for a Regional Premiere with Good Company Theatre in 2019.
