The University of Mary Washington will host Crimes Against Nature, a performance by Professor of Psychology Chris Kilmartin, to benefit the Rappahannock Council Against Sexual Assault in memory of Grace Mann on Saturday, Sept. 12.
Performed more 225 times and on more than 100 campuses, Crimes Against Nature takes a comedic look at the absurdities and contradictions of growing up as a male in America. The performance will start at 7 p.m. and take place in George Washington Hall’s Dodd Auditorium on the Fredericksburg campus.
Proceeds will go to the Rappahannock Council Against Sexual Assault. Every donated dollar will be matched by Mann’s parents, Thomas and Melissa. Suggested donations are $5 for students and $10 for non-students.
“We want to contribute to the ongoing healing over Grace’s death,” said Kilmartin, who served on UMW’s Sexual Assault Task Force with Mann. “We also wanted to support the cause that was so important to her.”
Crimes Against Nature is written and performed by Kilmartin and directed by Gregg Stull, professor of theatre and dance.
