We will have some professionals from RVAP and Transformative Healing on hand to host a panel discussion immediately following each performance so that we can all have an opportunity to process our experience and responses to the performance. The director, some cast members and playwright (second weekend) will also participate to answer questions about the creative process.
The Rape Victim Advocacy Program (RVAP) is a sexual assault victim advocate and prevention education agency that also hosts the Iowa Sexual Abuse Hotline. Embedded in the Division of Student Life at the University of Iowa, RVAP serves anyone impacted by sexual violence — survivors and/or their loved ones in the following eastern Iowa counties: Cedar, Des Moines, Henry, Iowa, Johnson, Lee, Washington, & Van Buren. Specifically, RVAP’s mission is to provide free, confidential, trauma-informed advocacy to all affected by sexual violence and promoting social change through prevention education. “Our vision is a community free of sexual violence.”
