“Actually,” a play by Anna Ziegler, is coming to the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company (MJTC).

The play is directed by Harry Waters, Jr. in his professional directorial premiere in the Twin Cities.

In “Actually,” two Princeton students – a white Jewish girl and an African-American guy – must recount their intimate evening together to a university panel charged with assessing whether sexual assault took place. This play explores perception and reality concerning consent and social norms today.

MJTC brings back University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program graduates Miriam Schwartz and JuCoby Johnson for this new work by the playwright of “Photograph 51.”

“Actually” runs Feb. 16 – March 10. Performances are Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 1 p.m. and Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. There are additional performances on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 1 p.m. Tickets are $23 - $38.
