Hard to find parking, since it is in a rather residential area.

Description

Featuring a unique combination of improvisational comedy, education, and audience participation, Sex Signals provides a provocative look at the issues of dating, sex, and ultimately, acquaintance rape on college campuses. The two-person show explores how mixed messages, gender role stereotypes, and unrealistic fantasies contribute to misunderstandings between the sexes. This interactive program was first produced and critically acclaimed as The Sensitive Swashbuckler & Other Dating Myths at Chicago’s highly respected Stage Left Theatre in May of 2000. Since then, the show has been performed over 1400 times at over 800 schools throughout the country. It has become one of the most popular programs on sexual assault awareness among college audiences and educators. With Sex Signals, Catharsis Productions is also proud to have received a 2007 Moxie Award from the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault for creative efforts to end sexual violence.
