Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. Something she says she can’t remember–something everybody is talking about. Set in a Midwestern high school, in a world of Facebook and Twitter, smartphones and YouTube, Good Kids explores a casual sexual encounter gone wrong and its very public aftermath. Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you?

A staged reading of the play will be performed by Towson University Theatre students. Following the reading will be a talk-back style discussion of the material led by professionals from the Counseling Centers of MICA, UMBC and Towson U.

This program is part of Towson University’s presentation of the “What Were You Wearing?” Survivor Art Installation, which originated at the University of Arkansas in 2013 inspired by inspired by Dr. Mary Simmerling’s poem, What I Was Wearing. This exhibit combines contemporary survivor stories with historic survivor stories researched from the Baltimore Sun, dating back as far as 1852. The TU Theatre Arts Department’s historic clothing collection adds a historical component to the exhibit to further emphasize how deeply these attitudes are woven into the fabric of our history and culture.
