Synopsis

At a raucous party during their freshman year at Princeton, Tom and Amber connect in ways that seem innocent enough at first. They flirt, they get drunk and they hook up.  The next day Amber accuses Tom of rape, and the two find themselves in murky territory with ramifications that could affect the rest of their lives. Actually is that rare play that you won't stop talking about!
