STEP 9 by Jack Canfora


In FALL 2022, New Normal Rep will branch out into the world of theatrical podcasting as it presents the world premiere of the serialized audio play STEP 9 by Jack Canfora starring Jill Eikenberry. 

STEP 9 tells the story of Emily, a woman wrestling with the implications of prosecuting the man who raped her in college 30 years ago. Is she willing to relive the horror of that night in the pursuit of justice? Pressured by both her strong-willed, pragmatic mother and her daughter, a passionate 21-year-old social justice warrior, Emily grapples to balance her need for due process with her emotional well-being.  

Told with raw emotional honesty and surprising moments of humor, STEP 9 confronts our collective sense of justice, the political tensions of three generations of feminists, and the precarious balance between social obligation and self-care.
