Jane Doe’s Support Group: A Theatrical Reading
Run Time: 90 min.
A new play by Michele A. Miller, Ph.D.
Historical, mythological, iconic and news-worthy women (including Anne Frank, Persephone, and Rose McGowan) come together to share their stories of sexual harassment, violence and the everyday challenges of growing up in a largely male-dominated world. Jane Doe (and yes, that is her real name—or is it?) is on hand to lead this very special women’s support group—or is she?
PLEASE NOTE – this play includes descriptions of sexual violence that may cause some people distress and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
