Will is a freshman at Watson College. Jordan is a senior film major.Tyler is writing a novel for his thesis. They are all members of the Men’s Peer Education group. At meetings they spend hours unpacking questions like: “What is male privilege? And what can we do about it?” They love each other and the group. Until some accusatory posters start appearing around campus suggesting that a member of the group committed sexual assault. Could it be that even sensitive guys, guys working on their privilege sometimes turn violent or aggressive? In this play women and gender non-conforming people play men trying to understand the intricacies of masculinity and violence.

In a small town library in the deep South, the two librarians share an unlikely close friendship, despite being on opposite sides of the gay marriage debate and culture war.
