Austin Peay's Student Life and Leadership Office presents an educational look into issues of sexual assault and date rape with Catharsis Productions' “Sex Signals.”

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 13 in Clement Auditorium.

As one of the Chicago Tribune's top five picks for Chicago late night theatre, the two-person play uses improvisation, audience interaction and humor to engage the audience in an honest discussion of difficult issues.

“Students need to be aware of the consequences that may arise from the situations they put themselves in or find themselves in,” says Lynne Yarbrough, coordinator of programs and special events for the Student Life and Leadership Office. “Our focus is on providing not only fun, but educational activities for students.”

The 75-minute play includes a humorous look at each gender's perspective of dating and exploration of factors contributing to miscommunication. Actors demonstrate the role miscommunication plays in sexual assault and then provide solutions for improving communication in interpersonal sexual relationships.

The program is free and open to all.
