The Arts Effect is getting ready to bring their new production SLUT the Play to the Dixon Place in New York. A new male companion piece, NOW THAT WE’RE MEN will also be debuting alongside the groundbreaking production for a short run.

SLUT the Play is inspired by the real life stories of its of the show’s cast members and centers around te 16-year-old teenage girl, Joey Del Marco who is dealing with a sexually assault.

Writer and co-director Katie Cappiello and fellow co-director Meg McInerney spoke about the play in a joint statement via press release, saying:

“We’ve watched communities be transformed after experiencing this play because they finally had the space to safely contemplate and engage in discussion around the issues of sexuality, shame and rape. While we’re inspired by the national attention being paid to sexual assault and the importance of consent education at the college level, the conversation needs to start earlier. Continuing to stage this play opens a door to dialogue with middle school and high school students –- and that is the key.”

Slut the Play stars Brittney Adebumola, Zora Casabere, Willa Cuthrell, Lexa Krebs, Amari Rose Leigh, Mary Miller,Casey Odesser, Katie Prael, Eliza Price, Darci Siegel, and Alice Stewart.

Now a companion piece to Slut the Play has been added. Exploring the effect of “rape culture” on the lives of teenage american men, the new play, NOW THAT WE’RE MEN stars Jordan Eliot, Caleb Grandoit, Fred Hechinger, Alphonso Jones and Rayshawn Richardson.

SLUT the Play runs January 28 through February 27 on Thursdays (January 28; February 4, 11, 18 and 25) at 7:00 PM and Saturdays (January 30; February 6, 13, 20 and 27) at 2:00 PM at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street, New York City 10002).
