Cut the Cord in association with Theatre503 presents
RUNNING TIME / NOTICES: 60mins (no interval)
A young couple at university have fallen in love. They listen to each other. They respect each other. But everything changes after a drunken evening with their friends. On this night, when he takes off her underwear and his boxers, she says, ‘No’. But he doesn’t stop. She struggles to assimilate the rape for what it was, because how could it be rape? He loves her. He couldn’t have done that.
A play about consent within a relationship and how we talk about rape and explores how two people deal with a trauma that fundamentally alters the nature of their relationship. Endless Second will be playing at Pleasance Below 31 July – 26 August and is working with The Survivors’ Trust.
