Quotes & Highlights
Nominated as “speaker of the year” by readers of Campus Activities magazine.
Blending 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.
At their worst, these factors enable some to view date rape as simple seduction, and for victims of rape to blame themselves for their vulnerability. Although the message is a serious one, the show uses humor throughout to engage audiences in candid discussions about interpersonal relationships. Seasoned actors and educators, the performers strike a balance between laughing about the differences between men and women, and clearly communicating some serious messages about how we treat one another.
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 2000. Since then, the show has been performed over 1,000 times at over 400 schools throughout the country. It has become one of the most popular programs on sexual assault awareness among college audiences and educators.
