Over the span of an hour and through her portrayal of 8 characters, Qurrat Ann Kadwani evaluates the flaws in a society where rape is supposedly eradicated, helping to raise awareness about sexual violence and combat systemic oppression.

for a previous production "Her theme could hardly be timelier, yet Kadwani has much more to add to current conversation than an extra blast of the prevalent sound and fury. Exhaustively researched, artfully assembled, and acted to perfection, her script traces the repercussions of sexual assault across the web of society at large...Her characters—often armed with horrifying statistics, pointedly deployed—raise questions that continue to resonate long after one leaves the theater." Full Review

NYC Talking

for a previous production "Q is one of the most amazing, committed, convincing, captivating performers I have ever seen...What stands out most to me about Q as a performer is how convincing and intense she can be...Though its only her on stage, she does a great job, through the use of her talents, props, and conversation to create an entire community...'Intrusion' couldn’t have come out at a better time...I strongly encourage you to take the time to watch this play, it’s totally worth the time."

Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if you like plays where one actor portrays different characters, each presenting his or her perspective on a shocking event.

Don't see it if if plays about rape and society's reaction to it do not appeal to you.

Don't see it if You want to laugh and not think

During previews
Ambitious, Edgy, Intelligent, Relevant, Confusing

See it if You want to be "schooled" in a good way about rape culture and the #me too movement of women fighting back against sexual harassment.

Don't see it if You have no patience for a timely and important one woman show that's more of an instruction course than a play but there's drama in it too.

During previews
Ambitious, Clever, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you enjoy one person shows where numerous characters are played without interaction with each other - the actress/writer is a dynamo.

Don't see it if you hate being talked at by 8 different characters in a futuristic time/circumstance that doesn't quite hold up. Lots of data shared.

Also Stage lighting was blinding in the first row.

Don't see it if you do not like solo shows, or you do, but you like them to find a dramatic arc.

Also I found the performer skilled and personable. But what plot there was ... Read more Read less

During previews
Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Slow, Static

See it if you like one-person shows on significant social issues. Acting is solid, but script is uneven. Premise isn't compelling; it should/could be.

Don't see it if you want fully engaging theater. You'll learn facts (Wiki on rape teaches more), but you won't feel much. No victim/ perp speaks. Slow parts

During previews
Ambitious, Relevant, Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

See it if you are so compelled by the admittedly important subject that you are willing to sit through a lecture Well meaning but not engaging

Don't see it if you go to theater to be drawn into the characters and their world. There is none of that here. It starts out promising but becomes doctrine

During previews
Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you like solid acting and want to learn about the politics, history, and sociology of rape and sexual abuse.

Don't see it if you want to be engaged throughout. Some of the characters were interesting, but too many simply lectured.

During previews
Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, A for effort

See it if You want to see a one woman show about the history, politics, thoughts, feelings and perspectives on rape. Want a lecture on history of rape

Don't see it if You don’t like one person shows, not interested in the topic of rape, don’t like lectures

Also This is a tough topic to make into a show and I give the writer/actres... Read more Read less

Intense, Disappointing, Repetitive

See it if you'd like a one woman show about anger regarding the Me Too movement presented in a somewhat militant tone.

Don't see it if you want something original with new ideas.

During previews
Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated

See it if you want to see a sincere "polemic" on how society, men and women, profit from rape.

Don't see it if you expect a real play dealing with the very interesting topic about how a society deals with reality intruding on its principles.

During previews
Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Relevant, Great writing

See it if you enjoy watching an unbelievably versatile actor whose every word & action invests you and brings an incredible script to life.

See it if you're looking for an emotionally and intellectually challenging bravura solo performance by a gifted writer/performer.

Don't see it if You're looking for "fluff" entertainment that doesn't require self-reflection and thought.

Don't see it if Factual insights and snippets in a show aren’t your thing

Funny, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You 've never experienced a solo play. It's great to see the actress transition from 1 character to another - especially a child at 1 point.

Don't see it if You're not interested in discussing the topic of sexual violence.
