“Good Kids,” a play that explores sexual assault and its impacts, will be presented Feb. 13-16 by the Northern Vermont University Performing Arts Department at NVU’s Johnson campus.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 13-15 and 2 p.m. Feb. 16 at Dibden Center for the Arts. General admission is $10. NVU instructor Margo Whitcomb will direct the production, with a cast of about 10 NVU students.
“Good Kids,” written by Naomi Iizuka, is set at a Midwestern high school and examines a sexual assault at a party and the aftermath. The fictional account was inspired by an incident in Steubenville, Ohio, in 2012 that drew national attention. Since its premiere in 2014, the play has been performed at high schools and colleges across the U.S. and Canada.
Iizuka was commissioned to write the play as part of the Big Ten Theatre Consortium’s New Play Initiative, established to promote work by female playwrights and create opportunities for women on stage. Iizuka teaches at the University of California-San Diego.
