LIVE TOUR NOTICE
Our Hearts go out to everyone impacted by Covid-19. So much of everyone’s lives is beset by anxiety and uncertainty. The Defamation Experience has also been impacted. We are not currently touring live.
Please check out DefEx Online to discover how our programming can be part of your solution to today’s most pressing online educational challenges.
Breaking The Barriers Of Diversity Programming
With 10 years running, THE DEFAMATION EXPERIENCE brings a proven interactive diversity experience to your audience. The play begins as a civil suit: Ms. Wade, an African-American business owner, is suing Mr. Golden, a Jewish real estate developer, for defamation. What follows is a 75-minute riveting trial that “holds our prejudices and assumptions under a powerful lens, and does not let go except by way of an unsettling self-examination.”
More Than A Play
Followed by a facilitated audience discussion, your audience will engage in civil discorse led by our expert facilitators, giving them an opportunity to speak up and be heard while also listening and understanding others’ perspectives. Conversations that begin in your venue will continue for days, weeks, and even months.
Since its premier in 2010, THE DEFAMATION EXPERIENCE has been performed over 550 times for universities, law schools, bar associations, high schools, civic and religious organizations, and theaters across the country, where it has been seen by more than 150,000 people.
A Three-Phase Online & Interactive Diversity Opportunity
When race, class, religion, gender, and the law collide, a conversation begins about the most important issues of our day.
An African-American owner of a small business sues a Jewish real estate developer for defamation after she is accused of stealing his family heirloom. There is no smoking gun.
Your audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, your audience engages in civil discourse that stimulates critical dialogue and conversation.
