The Rape of the Sabine Women by Grace B. Matthias @ RePower Yolo

  • RePower Yolo 909 5th Street Davis, CA, 95616 United States (map)

“When Grace B. Matthias is raped, her world spirals into chaos. Between navigating emotionally unstable guidance counselors, overbearing lawyers, an angry championship football team, and useless Wikipedia answers, Grace tries to make sense of her world anew. A complex collision of satire and dark comedy, Michael Yates Crowley’s play fearlessly explores rape culture in America.” (

“A superb rape comedy--yes, you read that right.” Helen Shaw, TimeOut

“The play, a serious effort to dramatize a rape and its repercussions, also dares itself to be a satire.” The New York Times

Originally developed as part of The Playwrights Realm Writing Fellowship 2014-15, the play had its world premiere in New York in 2017. This performance will be the play’s West Coast debut.
