Marjorie is home alone on a sunny morning in 1980 when a man enters through her unlocked door, attacks her, and attempts to rape her. She is able to subdue and restrain him, but the threat to Marjorie’s life is far from over. When Marjorie’s roommates, Terry and Patricia, come home, the three grapple with what to do next and the implications of their limited options. If women’s accounts of sexual assault are not believed, what lengths must they go to in order to feel safe? What constitutes credibility in the eyes of the public and the law? And what does it mean to be both a victim and a perpetrator of violence? William Mastrosimone’s play is just as relevant today as it was nearly 40 years ago, and shines a light on the obstacles victims of sexual assault face when they seek justice.
