Intrusion is a solo play with eight characters played by Qurrat Ann Kadwani. Twenty years in the future, sexual violence has been eradicated until one woman comes forward about her rape. Audiences of all backgrounds and ages can see how we all contribute to the perpetuation of rape culture by understanding how this event affects different sectors of our society.

The narrator is a college student who motivates the audience to speak up and find their own voices. Characters include journalist, prosecutor, daytrader, politician, psychologist, and third grader. An additional character of professor helps the audience learn about sexual violence statistics, Title IX history, self defense moves, and the complexity of sexual violence against women.

Please be aware that sensitive topics will be discussed during this performance.
