Presented by the Department of Drama. 

By Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Holly Thuma
May 3 -11
Opening Night: May 4

A hard-hitting and clear-eyed look at the troubling aftermath of the sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl by members of a high school football team. Based on actual events, Good Kids examines how social media makes private lives public in ways we don’t always anticipate and can’t always control. At the same time, it sheds light on issues that are often treated as isolated incidents – but which, in truth, reflect attitudes and beliefs prevalent in the culture at large.
