Rules of Play is a comedic, Brechtian theatre piece (filmed due to COVID) written and directed by Kate Franklin. This play dramatizes Greek life and hookup culture on college campuses to illuminate the harms associated with these patriarchal systems and the part they play in the pervasiveness of sexual assault on college campuses. Since filming, Kate has worked with multiple fraternities on campus to transform hookup culture to be more safe and healthy for everyone. Using the play as a jumping off point, Kate engages in empathetic and open dialogue with Greek men about sexual violence prevention and consent education.
