    As a thoughtfully outspoken journalist, author, and movement leader, Rachel Hills calls on her audiences and co-collaborators to inspect narratives that work to bind us in oppressive structures. Her recent book, The Sex Myth, presents the provocative hypothesis that the sexual revolution beginning the 1960s has confined us in our own narratives. She posits that our performative speaking keeps us from actually practicing truly liberated, honest, and authentic sexualities. Rachel’s book has been adapted into a devised play where each cast conjures and creates the play anew. You can find Rachel on Twitter at @rachelhills.
