One-Woman Dramatization Draws Attention To Rape (Intrusion)

By Bob Evans
Original review on KC Applauds

The Squeezebox Theatre offers an extremely intimate black box setting for one the 2018 Fringe Festival’s powerful and out of town entries, “Intrusion” written and performed by Qurrat Ann Kadwani–a powerful message with a determined, powerful actress/author.

The show begins somewhere in the future and provides a history of Title IX development and the public education of sex crimes against women. Also included, a brief sexual assault on a adolescent man by an adolescent woman, because, yes, that can happen, too. Sex crimes take different shapes and different situations and include different sexual orientations, but remain unwanted sexual advances toward another person.

Included in the show are such topics as rape culture, politics, media attention, legal problems with proving a rape case, psychology of the after-effects of rape by rape victims, education as it is seen in 20 years, the changes in Title IX over the years, male and female sexual assault, and the inclusion of LGBTQ persons in their sexual encounters.
