Glory vs. the Wolves: A staged reading to raise awareness about rape culture
Co-sponsored by 20% Theatre Company Chicago
Suggested $3 donation benefits the Women's Voices Fund
Glory vs. the Wolves explores rape culture through the eyes of four women who are held captive and never allowed to learn of the outside world. One day they see a newspaper, which contains an article about a sexual assault trial. Armed with a vocabulary for their experiences, they realize they no longer need to accept their submissive life. They lead a revolt against those who hold them prisoner. After the reading, representatives from Rape Victim Advocates and Slut Walk Chicago will lead a discussion about rape culture. Rachel Bykowski's plays, which focus on strong female characters, have been performed at DePaul University and Cock and Bull Theatre. Rachel is a company member of 20% Theatre Company Chicago and earned her BFA in playwriting from the Theatre School of DePaul University.
