Stage Manager: Zach Holzberg
Our first show of the year, by Kilroy List playwright MJ Kaufman, is a satirical and incisive way to enter into difficult conversations about topics of advocacy and allyship. SENSITIVE GUYS, is a play for the moment, particularly as it creates avenues of discussion surrounding topics that need to be addressed on college campuses.
SENSITIVE GUYS takes place in the supposedly safe spaces of a small liberal arts college where the student-led Men’s Peer Education Group and Womxn’s Survivor Support Group work together on an ambitious plan — to eradicate all sexual violence everywhere within five years. They are pretty sure they can do it, no problem... until an incident threatens to throw their ideals into question. Five female and gender non-conforming performers inhabit both male and female roles in this social satire about complicity and what it really might take to face the patriarchal forces that persist, even in the most unexpected places.
Be advised: This play is a humorous and constructive piece that discusses rape culture as well as issues and incidents of sexual assault. Please contact the box office at Theater@Temple.edu with any questions.
