Resonant with Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Spoken Word takes place in a small community dominated by hearsay, fear, outrage, and over-reaching authority figures. On the isolated campus of a Midwest university – sex, race, and gender, collide in an epic culture war. At the center of this genre-bending drama are two undergrads – one Persian, the other Black – trying to navigate their conflicted feelings, while social loyalties, family obligations, and administrative pressures encroach on their privacy with an oppressive need to know everything about their sexual encounter gone wrong. In Spoken Word everyone will have their say, and it all turns on a single word – never spoken.
