Evening Screening Lab: The Mask You Live In

Translator is thrilled to announce this very special screening edition of Evening Lab, co-sponsored by the Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University! Brought to you by the Representation Project, The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. The film is a companion piece to the Project's first release, Miss Representation, which examines the underrepresentation of women in the media. Although focused on boys, the ramifications of this issue are not gender specific, and we encourage everyone to attend and spread awareness of this important social issue (the film is recommended for 16+). Space is limited at this special event, so please reserve your tickets through this Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/evening-screening-lab-the-mask-you-live-in-tickets-16468345264 This screening is free and open to the public and will be followed by discussion. Johnston Hall is located on the south-side of Wisconsin Avenue at 12th St. and is immediately to the east of Gesu Church. Room 103 is immediately visible upon entering the building. There is ample street parking in the area, and a parking structure 2 blocks away at the corner of 13th and Wells ($5). See you at Lab!

EXTREMETIES by William Mastrosimone

This intense drama portrays an attempted rape, and the gripping aftermath, as the would-be victim turns the tables on her attacker. EXTREMITIES explores themes that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago when the play was written. We have also formed a partnership with The Healing Center of Milwaukee, a local organization that supports survivors of sexual violence.
