Food for Thought: The Defamation Experience

Thursday November 5, 2020


11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
The Defamation Experience is an interactive and riveting new way of understanding the
United States legal system through theater. A courtroom drama play, “The Defamation
Experience” touches on topics of race, social class, religion and gender. Audience interaction
is key throughout this play because the audience acts as the jury.

The play centers on a defamation lawsuit between a south side African American female
business owner and a wealthy Jewish north shore real estate developer. Following the 75-
minute trial, the judge will lead the audience through deliberation. An audience vote will
decide the outcome of the trial.
