Amber and Tom, finding their way as freshmen at Princeton, spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? With lyricism and wit, ACTUALLY investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story. Tom is played by Marcus Ivey and Amber, by Nadine Pineda.

About the Director
Jen Stephenson previously directed Pumpgirl at Mother Road. She says,"This play feels ripped from the headlines, reflecting as it does the #MeToo movement. But Ziegler's take is psychologically complex and intentionally frustrating. It is a meticulously detailed script, and more than occasionally funny, despite its serious themes."
