Steubenville

From Standing Room Only, 2:38 pm on 15 March 2015

Kiwi Eleanor Bishop bases her new show on a notorious rape that was revealed to the victim via tweets. Eleanor is studying directing in America on a Fulbright Scholarship at the Carnegie Mellon University's School of Drama in Pittsburgh. For Steubenville, which opens this week, she's using the rape trial transcript as well as interviews, and for good measure, she's mixing in the Sleeping Beauty story.
