Our Voices will be a collaborative, student-devised work, designed to share stories both from survivors of sexual assault and about rape culture on our campus in general. Sexual violence is an epidemic on Harvard’s campus, and the need for meaningful engagement with this issue could not be clearer or more pressing. Our Voices—while privileging the voices of students on this campus—will be presented in collaboration with the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (OSAPR). Our Voices will be a space for storytelling and for sharing and we hope it will build on the work done at this semester’s Rally for Sexual Assault Survivors. The show will take place at the end of April–Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)–and it will be the capstone of OSAPR’s SAAM programming.... Read more about Our Voices

The SatireV Spring Musical

The comedy magazine that brought you “Aunt Arleen Suddenly Expert in Foreign Policy” is proud to present its second annual spring musical, a Shakespearean popstravaganza filled with laughs, violence, and extremely realistic fight choreography. We combine the power and raw emotion of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy with the falsettos and white gloves of Michael Jackson’s discography to bring you an absurdist jukebox musical that, let’s face it, is nowhere near as absurd as either of its inspirations....

It is the dawn of electricity, and Dr. Givings is using a newfangled machine to induce “paroxysms” in his patients with hysteria. All the while his wife Catherine sits in the next room, watching patients who were previously distraught leave pleasantly satisfied. Her curiosity eventually gets the best of her, and she manages to sneak into her husband’s operating theater.
