The Defamation Experience, a three-phase interactive diversity event, will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, in the Busch Student Center.
The experience is a unique interactive diversity program comprised of three components; the play which explores the highly charged issues of race, class, religion, gender and the law with a twist: the audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post show discussions, audiences engage in civil discourse that challenges preconceived notions.
According to playwright Todd Logan, “Whether we like it or not, we still have major divides in this country. Most of us still go to bed at night in cities, communities and neighborhoods that are segregated by race, religion, ethnicity and/or class. I wanted to write a play that encourages open, honest conversation that leads to greater understanding and empathy to combat today's prevailing trends.”
