WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A documentary play composed of interviews with college students about their experiences with formal sex education both in and out of the classroom, Blanket Statement is a compilation of verbatim monologues — stories of awkward conversations and confusing interactions, of shame and fear, joy and satisfaction. Inspired by consciousness-raising, the show is political, educational, and cathartic, intended to combat stigma and to promote conversation and open discourse. Such work is crucial at any time and especially now, amid a political and cultural climate that threatens to eliminate access to sexual literacy and health care.
