A Funny Show on that Awkward Topic

On Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m. in SVCC’s Mathis Theater, a free production with a solution will help make an awkward discussion for many an easy experience.  The production’s topic is sex. Sex Signals will take hard to discuss topics such as rape, sexual assault, and prevention in a way that makes audiences consider all consequences while feeling relaxed and comfortable.

Sex Signals differs from traditional sexual assault prevention programs in that it incorporates improvisational comedy, education, and audience interaction to provide a provocative look at dating, sex, and the core issue of consent.  The two-person play challenges the audience to stand up and search for signs of sexual assault and solutions to create safe relationships as well as how to positively intervene in vulnerable situations that can lead to sexual violence.
