On the cover:

Dr. Michelle Carnes is an expert in all things taboo. With her Ph.D. from American University, Carnes has made a professional study on taboo acts and their impact on mental health. Her current focus is on taboo performance spaces in Washington D.C. and New York City. As a former WIT student, Carnes is taking her knowledge and passion back to the WIT stage, as she speaks for a part of women that often is forced silent.


“His Perspective” Monologist

Sam Bonar was made fun of (for obvious reasons) from 5th to 8th grade in Delray Beach, FL.

In Drama Club, his only comeback to the repeated distortions of his silly last name was, “You don’t have to say it every time you get one!” They still did. He finally escaped in college, swearing off normal theater for the opportunity to screw around onstage with Occam’s Razor at UChicago.
