A thought provoking journey, with a fresh young cast. ... full review

This is a show with a message that needs to be sung from the mountain tops - while short, (a mercy, considering the heavy subject matter) the play manages to take us through the entire lived experience and perspective of what it's like to be a victim of "the gray" areas of sexual assault. It's a piece designed to open dialogues about consent, particularly on college campuses, where discussions about these things are greatly needed. It's an incredible, educational look into different perspectives like we haven't seen before. The Gray should be required viewing for everyone at least once!... full review

Bravo to the Lady Parts Collective for the clarity of their mission and ability to use their artistic voice to activate change! This project bravely and directly addresses sexual violence and rape on college campuses with professionalism, excellence, respect, and urgency. It's pretty incredible to know that this has been a 3-year co-writing process. This is community-based social change work at its finest!!... full review

This show is an incredible example of how art can impact a community. It told a compelling story then involved the audience in a discussion about the "gray area" of sexual assault and showcased the talents of local LA students.... full review

Honestly this was such an empowering and educational performance. It shows how things ACTUALLY go down while at a party. I loved it. Highly recommended.... full review

Everyone, everywhere needs to see this. It's so important on every level that we understand these dynamics. Seeing this as a performance helps frame how we should behave when it happens in everyday life. It's emotional and intense, but it flows beautifully with intermittent humor to lighten the darkness. If I would have been exposed to something like this prior to college, I could have helped so many more people who went through this understand their options, and know they weren't alone. So many people are terrified of what this play showcases, and that makes it even more important to expose.... full review

This is a very important project that does a great job of addressing a very difficult human issue! The approach of allowing college actors to tell this story is a brilliant and effective choice!... full review

As important as the show is the fact that most of the cast and production team are young people. This isn't going to be the best acting Oscar-winning performance of fringe, but instead it's a worthy production, deserving of praise for its willingness to dive into an important topic. I was proud to watch all the young people involved- and especially to see the cast include so many guys. The show is quick and efficient- it's educational but not in your face. I love the talk-back aspect and I think the organization I saw was effective in some ways- but the talk-back was more of a talk-at--- I think it would be great to encourage the audience to get involved more. ... full review
