How to Defend Yourself - Barn Season

How to Defend Yourself by Liliana Padilla

Seven college students gather for a self-defense workshop after a sorority sister is assaulted on campus.

This sharp, honest and funny new play by writer, director, actor, and community builder Liliana Padilla explores the intersection of sex, community, and what it means to heal in a violent world. Padilla shows how learning self-defense becomes a channel for the students’ rage, anxiety, confusion, trauma, and desire. The play examines what one wants, how to ask for it, and the ways rape culture threatens one’s body and sense of belonging.

Recommended Age 16+

Contains explicit discussions about sex and sexual violence but does not depict either.
