    ‘Grab them by the pussy.’

    During his controversial presidential election campaign, Donald Trump regularly made statements considered by many to be misogynistic and offensive. Though he made little apology for either his language or alleged actions, the electorate elevated him to the highest office in the land – bringing his views along with him.

    Can such sexually abusive rhetoric really be accepted as mere locker room talk? Is this simply an individual or one who speaks to a silent majority? Might it be that our world isn’t as progressive as we’d like to think?

    Gary McNair wants to think we’re better than this, and is having honest conversations with men about women to see if he is right or wrong. The words of these men are performed by a cast of women in this verbatim piece.

    Each performance will be followed by a discussion giving the opportunity for the audience to participate, ask questions and examine the issues raised.
