Based on true events, Writing on the Wall tells the shattering story of coeds at a prestigious college who claim to have been sexually assaulted. They declare the names of the perpetrators by writing them on the library restroom wall; their words glowing with fury.

The shaken Dean of Students scrambles to manage a growing crisis.
The bloodhound of a newspaper reporter smells a big story.
The college paper’s obsessive editor opens doors that may never close again.
The Chancellor remains calm, steadfast in the belief that his domain is unassailable.

When weapons of deceit and deception are wielded, they bring long held agonizing secrets bubbling to the surface.

Writing On The Wall is presented amid today’s climate of increasingly frequent sexual assaults on college campuses and mounting challenges to Title IX. Each performance will be followed by a talk-back session exploring the multiple issues raised in this important and timely piece.

Net proceeds will support the work of Day One and One Billion Rising. A semifinalists for the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Award, Day One partners with youth to end dating abuse and domestic violence. One Billion Rising is the world’s largest international campaign to end violence against women and girls. It was founded by Eve Ensler, our original collaborator.
