Student Body, a play by Frank Winters, returns to Winnipeg with Beau Theatre Co. in a new iteration, combining theatre with art and drag to address consent and sexual assault on campuses. When ten college students meet in an empty theatre under mysterious circumstances, values will be questioned to create a discussion of loyalty, responsibility and morality.
In partnership with Drag in the Peg, a different drag performer will take to the stage before each performance with a number inspired by their own interpretation of the play’s themes, morals and issues.
