Pepperdine Theatre: The Interference
U.S. Premiere presented by the Pepperdine Theatre DepartmentWritten by Glasgow-Based Irish Playwright Lynda Radley, Directed by Cathy Thomas-Grant
Allegations. He said. She said. Truth.
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.
Commissioned by Pepperdine University and first presented in its world premiere by Pepperdine Students at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer 2016. Join a talkback with the actors and director after the Wednesday performance.
