Actually follows two freshman students at Princeton University, Amber and Tom, who party heavily to cope with mounting pressures until one shared evening of flirting and drinking ends in a sexual encounter that may or may not have been consensual. Before either can fully grasp what actually happened, they’re swept up in the nerve-rattling university judicial process that changes the course of both their lives.
Ziegler calls the backdrop of Actually “hugely important” yet also “beside the point.” She writes in an author’s note, “The play, to me, not only holds up a mirror to a certain moment in time… but also hopefully speaks to a larger and more timeless question about who we are as men and as women and what forces drive our actions.”
Actually is directed by Cincinnati-based theatre director Bridget Leak, who has worked frequently with local theatres to stage productions that address the subject of sexual violence. The production also features Tyler Fauntleroy as Tom and Remy Zaken as Amber, both of whom are making their debut at the Playhouse.
