Why We Have Winter

by Alexa Derman '19

Only a myth.

*** Why We Have Winter contains themes of sexual violence and self-harm. While we would love for everyone to see this show, our first priority is audience well-being. If you have any questions about specifics, please feel free to email laura.goetz@yale.edu to find out if coming seems like the best choice for you.

A new play by Alexa Derman that follows Anna and Helen through the aftermath of sexual assault. About high school, teenage girls, and loving when it hurts on both sides.

We are looking for a production staff composed entirely of women and non-binary individuals. No experience required! Email Michaela if you'd like to join.
