Asking For It
Asking for It and What I Call Her
By Ellie Moon

Two plays from rising Canadian theatre star Ellie Moon. Asking For It looks at gender roles and sexual consent in the wake of the Ghomeshi scandal, and considers the various ways in which sexual consent is understood personally, culturally, and legally. In this documentary play, Moon speaks with people of all ages and backgrounds about their assumptions and experiences around consent to sexual relations, and with legal experts about the current state of sexual assault law in Canada. What I Call Her is a play about gaps in how people perceive and understand the world they live in, female generational rage, and the loneliness of holding on to one’s own truth.
