Permanent Marker is an original one-person play. It is an exploration of a woman’s fragmented response to rape and the imperfection of memory. As the piece develops the sense of a solid story/timeline disintegrates using the experience of disassociation. Her memory jumps back and forth as her sense of self disconnects, and she becomes overwhelmed by the potential beauty of her trauma.
Trigger/Content warnings: sexual assault, rape, disassociation
