Jane Doe

  • Touring Hub - Old 505 Theatre 5 Eliza St Newtown (map)


Jane Doe goes to a party. She gets drunk. She blacks out. She is raped.

This is a theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities.

Karin McCracken (Auckland Arts Festival/Silo Theatre's Body Double and Auckland Theatre Company's Mrs Warren's Profession) leads a public reading of a rape trial transcript, where audience members read as witnesses and lawyers, and feed in live responses via their phones. 
Interwoven with frank and funny documentary footage with young people from across America, the UK and Aotearoa, Jane Doe is a revelatory and carefully crafted discussion on consent, feminism and sexual empowerment.

Winner: Social Impact Award, Auckland Fringe 2017

"Breathtaking in its sincerity, groundbreaking in its approach. A show grounded in its quiet humanity [4 stars]" - The Theatre Guide, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017
