A Live Streamed Digital Theatrical Experience.

Sensitive Guys is a comedy where two student-led support groups work to confront and eradicate toxic masculinity and sexual violence on a small liberal arts college campus. The Men’s Peer Education Group works to challenge the norms and perspectives around male privilege, and the Survivor Support Group provides a place where survivors of assault have a place to reach out and help take action. With this comes challenges within and outside the two groups as allegations surface and each is faced with the realities of gender identity and influences of power.

The Department of Theatre invites you watch their livestream student production of Sensitive Guys. This production is in partnership with End Rape on Campus and Northeastern’s Sexual Assault Response Coalition. Following some of the livestreams, the cast and crew will host a “Talkback” discussion with production partners on the topics discussed in the show.
