Amber and Tom are in the first year at their elite American university. Their paths cross and they connect in ways that seem innocent enough at first. But after they hook up at a party and spend the night together things start to become more clouded. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but what actually happened between them?
This deeply felt, funny and thought-provoking play comes from the award-winning playwright Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51). With wit and urgency, ACTUALLY investigates the highly charged topic of sexual consent, the complex intersection of race and gender politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.
