Presented by Impetus Ensemble, the 7 PM reading will feature the talents of Christine E. Dow, Liza Harris, Eric LaPointe, Benedict Mazurek and John Edgar Moser.

Consent, according to press notes, "examines the many types of bullying certain teens face, both obvious and subtle. The work focuses on a troubled sixteen-year old trying to come to terms with his sexuality in the face of ridicule and prejudice. The play explores the responsibilities we all have to communicate with our youth and teach our children to celebrate their differences instead of denigrating them. Consent also warns against taking advantage of the trust teens place in the adults they look up to."

Playwright Avella is also the author of Vatican Falls.

The reading is free and will take place at Chelsea Studios, 151 West 26th Street, 5th Floor, Room 503. To RSVP, email impetusensemble@aol.com.
