19 May “Prima Facie” Sparks Dialogue: WATCH Activist Roundtable Moderated by V (formerly Eve Ensler)
New Play Prima Facie Sparks Dialogue About Sexuality, Masculinity & Consent:
WATCH Activist Roundtable Moderated by V (formerly Eve Ensler)
Prima Facie is the award-winning new play starring Jodie Comer, written by Suzie Miller and directed by Justin Martin, currently running on Broadway. The play follows a young female barrister and her experience of the law around sexual assault from both sides of the court.
Prima Facie producer James Bierman asked V (formerly Eve Ensler) to moderate a roundtable conversation with thinkers, leaders, and advocates to amplify the issues raised in the play: sexual assault and the rights of those violated, the devastating impact of our racist patriarchal systems of justice, and the issue of consent.
V hosted a panel of extraordinary activists and survivors including playwright Suzie Miller; Kenyora Parham, Executive Director of End Rape on Campus; Quentin Walcott, Executive Directer of Connect; Kavita Mehra, Executive Director of Sakhi for South Asian Women; and Soma Sara, founder of Everyone’s Invited.
Learn about the connection between the main character’s name and V, and ways in which these extraordinary activists are tackling the themes and issues raised in the play.
