Production Description
When Grace B. Matthias is raped, her world spirals into chaos. Between navigating emotionally unstable guidance counselors, overbearing lawyers, an angry championship football team, and useless Wikipedia answers, Grace tries to make sense of her world anew. A complex collision of satire and dark comedy, The Rape of the Sabine Women, By Grace B. Matthias fearlessly explores rape culture in America. Written by Michael Yates Crowley and directed by Tyne Rafaeli, this world premiere was developed as part of The Realm’s Writing Fellowship in the 2014-2015 season.

The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Grace B. Matthias uses satire to explore the serious topics of rape and rape culture. The production features mature language, instances of sexual and physical violence, and brief nudity. Recommended for ages 16 and up.
