A new production at the San Diego Repertory Theatre called "Actually" tackles the topics of sexual politics, racial dynamics and how sometimes, the truth gets complicated.
The play revolves around two college students who have a sexual encounter after a night of drinking. The day after, the woman accuses the man of rape and the two grapple with defining the hook-up and dealing with its consequences. The play is written by Anna Ziegler and directed by Jesca Prudencio.
The woman, Amber, is played by Emily Shain and the man, Tom, is played by DeLeon Dallas. Both are graduates of the MFA in acting program at UC San Diego.
The play runs from Thursday to Nov. 4 at the Lyceum Space Theatre in downtown San Diego.
Prudencio and Dallas join Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss the San Diego REP's newest production.
