Riot Act, Inc. presents Not Someone Like Me by Susan Rice Friday April 23 – Sunday April 25 at 7pm Riot Act, Inc’s Studio in the Center for the Arts.
Not Someone like me is a play about sexual assault based on five true stories. On television and in film, the experience of rape is often sensationalized, exploited, and distant. Hearing these stories told by living, breathing women, in real time, has a vastly different effect. With each woman’s story, the play explores a common theme: speaking out turns victims into survivors, if not heroes. NOT SOMEONE LIKE ME aims to inspire audiences to tell their own stories—and put an end to the silence and the shame. ~Dramatist Play Service
Helmed by director Deborah Supowit and assistant director Lacey Lukas, the show boasts a wonderful cast including Linda Rode, Joanne Rowland, Karissa Dabel, Cynthia Huyffer, and Johanna Nchekwube.
Join us after each performance for a talk-back session including experts on the topic from Community Safety Network.
