Slut: The Play actress Winnifred Bonjean-Alpart

Inspired by events in the lives of its teenaged cast, “Slut” follows the journey of a 16-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted by three friends. The play emerged from an ongoing theater project that brings girls as young as middle school together to share personal stories, including the prevalence of so-called “slut shaming” among girls, the experience of consensual and coerced sexual activity and other often-taboo aspects of many girls’ lives. The group sparked a teen-led movement, #StopSlut, as well as a push for schools to address these issues earlier. We speak with the writer of the play and a teen cast member.
