Rogue Machine in Association with Pepperdine Scotland Presents
Written by Glasgow-Based Irish Playwright Lynda Radley

Allegations. He said. She said. Truth.

Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award for excellence and innovation in new writing
Winner of the Broadway Baby Bobby Award for exceptional work on the Fringe
Final shortlist for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award for outstanding work addressing human rights issues.

Through the use of a live-mixed soundscape and set against the backdrop of the worldwide university campus sexual assault epidemic, THE INTERFERENCE follows one survivor’s struggle to make her story heard above all the noise. It explores the seemingly infinite source of opinion, commentary, and distorted or suppressed information that have become routine players in the aftermath of these incidents. The play also takes a closer look at the unique circumstances involved when student athletes are part of the story.
