About This Production
Arrant Knavery and ICMTheatre are partnering together to bring a very special event to Pensacola.
These two companies will be presenting a staged reading of THE FLORA AND FAUNA, a two-woman play that presents what life after sexual assault looks like for survivors.
Tickets will be $10 at the door. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the #MeToo Movement through Girls for Gender Equity, the official fiscal sponsor for the movement. Casks and Flights have also generously donated their space for this event and will be donating 5% of drink sales that evening to the movement. Haley Morrissette will be representing the Lakeview Center with a booth dedicated to victim resources.
Doors will be open at 6pm and the reading will begin at 6:30pm.

Note from Playwright Alyson Mead:
THE FLORA AND FAUNA was inspired by a single line from the famous letter read in court during the Stanford rape case. During the Kenyon Playwriting Conference, Atlantic Theatre’s Abby Katz challenged us to include elements of ritual and community in our work, and the play began to come together very shortly after.
I’ve always seen this as an exploration of what comes after a sexual assault — how one’s daily, mundane life might be affected, who one might choose to hang out with, and how intimacy may or may not play a part in that. While we tend to focus on how sexuality might be affected, how would a friendship between two women change over time?
THE FLORA AND FAUNA was developed with the assistance of The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre, the Henley-Rose Playwriting Award, Ensemble Studio Theatre Los Angeles, 360repco and the Playwrights Center, San Francisco.
