“The Defamation Experience” Encourages Dialogue

“The Defamation Experience” Encourages Dialogue

On Wednesday morning, Upper School students participated in The Defamation Experience, an interactive, theatrical performance and discussion centered around a fictional courtroom drama involving a civil defamation case. Using the context of a legal trial, the cast navigated issues including race, class, gender and religion, culminating in deliberation and a decision in which students participated as jurors. The post-show discussion, led by a trained facilitator, provided the opportunity to engage in civil discourse around issues of identity, inclusion, justice and our connection as people.
