The Defamation Experience

August 1 - October 1

This is, “a 70-minute recording of the riveting courtroom drama by award-winning playwright Todd Logan exploring the highly charged issues of race, class, religion, gender, and the law.

Now, here’s the twist: your audience is the jury.
Your organization will be polled with three options, finding for the plaintiff, for the defendant, or undecided. Attendees can then virtually raise their hand and be promoted to panelist to give their thoughts and opinions on the case and its outcome. After a consensus of voices have been heard, a second poll will decide the outcome of the trial.

Immediately following deliberation and the verdict, our expert facilitators lead a post show discussion where audiences engage in civil discourse that drives self-examination and challenges bias and preconceived notions. For the last 10 years, we’ve continuously heard that these conversations last for days, weeks, and months!”
