Drama- Theatrical Experimental Piece


NIGHT FROM THE 4TH TO 5TH tells of a sexual assault and the young woman who fought back. But her memory is playing tricks on her—she’s plagued with memory lapses and fleeting images. It is the story of a woman who speaks rather than remains silent; who acts rather than remains paralyzed.
