A Doll House + 1950's Sitcoms + feminist writings TBA. What does Nora have in common with June Cleaver, Donna Reed, and Lucy Ricardo? That's what we'd be exploring here. I believe smashing together classic text with modern pop culture helps students see the contemporary relevance of these stories.

Will is a freshman at Watson College. Jordan is a senior film major. Tyler is writing a novel for his thesis. They are all members of the Men's Peer Education group. At meetings, they spend hours unpacking questions like: "what is male privilege? And what can we do about it?" They love each other and the group. Until some accusatory posters start appearing around campus suggesting that a member of the group committed sexual assault. Could it be that even sensitive guys, guys working on their privilege sometimes turn violent or aggressive? In this play, women and gender non-conforming people play men trying to understand the intricacies or masculinity and violence.
