Randolph to host one-woman play as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Graphic with information about the performance and star

In the one-woman show Intrusion, actress Qurrat Ann Kadwani plays eight different characters living in a future where sexual violence has been eradicated—until one woman comes forward about being raped.

Over the course of an hour, Kadwani uses each character to shed light on the complexity of sexual violence against women and rape culture, while looking at power dynamics, Title IX history, sexual violence statistics, and even self-defense moves.

Her roles include a college student, acting as the narrator, who motivates the audience to speak up and also finds her own voice, as well as a journalist, prosecutor, politician, psychologist, and professor.

The performance, part of Randolph’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month programming, is part of Kadwani’s college tour, spanning 200 shows in 35 states.

Kadwani is an award-winning actress, producer, MC, TV host, and philanthropist who has been seen on TV in Law & Order: SVU, The Blacklist, Inventing Anna, and The Sinner.

She is the first South Asian female to have a solo play, They Call Me Q, produced Off-Broadway.

A graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and a theatre graduate of SUNY Geneseo, Kadwani teaches private classes in solo play creation, audition prep, and monologue writing, prep, and performance.
