A powerful theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities, Jane Doe is an original work created and directed by Eleanor Bishop, drawing on real-life cases and verbatim research.
Actor Karin McCracken 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 across America and Aotearoa, Jane Doe is a revelatory and carefully crafted discussion on consent, feminism and sexual empowerment.
One of the most important conversations for our time, it’s “about me, you, that girl you heard about in high school, or college, or work. It’s about your nieces and nephews, sons and daughters who are growing up in a world where ‘No’ means ‘Maybe’ and unconscious means ‘Yes’” (Theatre Scenes).
