It's hard to believe Paul Downs Colaizzo's prescient campus drama was written in 2013, before scandals such as those involving Rolling Stone and Bill Cosby reignited debates about why sexually assaulted women face uphill battles to be heard. It plays out like a direct response, and James Yost's gripping Interrobang Theatre Project production picks up on every argumentative angle and nuance. A group of undergraduate Ivy League students tries to piece together a time line leading up to a possibly criminal blackout-drunk encounter the night before, but social pressures, class dynamics, and hazy memories warp each character's narrative. Debate whiplash threatens at times, yet Yost's superb young cast manages both to make sense of it all and to humanize every decision—abhorrent in hindsight as they may be. —Dan Jakes
