Jane Doe goes to a party. She gets drunk. She blacks out. She is raped. This is a participatory theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities. One performer leads a public reading of a rape trial transcript, where audience members read as witnesses and lawyers and feed in live responses via their phones. Interwoven with frank and funny documentary footage with young people from the US, UK and Aotearoa, Jane Doe is a revelatory and carefully crafted discussion on consent, feminism and sexual empowerment.
