Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry
Written by Arlene Hutton
Directed by Jenni Merritt

Read by members of the Friday Harbor Thespian Society

When the president of student council throws a house party and photos are posted online, a group of friends get caught up in a series of shifting events that forces them to question what really happened. Flowing and atmospheric, Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry creates a powerful collage that examines the teenage experience of sexuality, objectification, shaming, and date rape.

Post-Play Discussions

Following each performance, we will be having a “ talk back” about the issues facing teens today with the cast and island professionals from Safe San Juans and the Prevention Coalition.
