From the venue:

Atlanta's Synchronicity Theatre presents Walk, Girl by Rebekah Boroughs and Lindsay Carpenter as part of this season's Stripped Bare: Arts Incubator Project. Synopsis: The night before her bridal shower in Appalachia, Hannah goes out for a drink, and is drugged and raped by a stranger. As she struggles to deal with wedding planning, doctors, policemen and self-forgiveness, her story intertwines with two other women. Her mother-in-law's past becomes present when she discovers Hannah's horrible secret, and a mythical Grandma Gatewood (the first woman to walk the Appalachian Trail) serves as a spiritual guide to Hannah and her fiancé, Jaime, as they attempt to heal their relationship. The story is told out of chronological order revealing scenes before and after the assault, which is never shown on stage. Sometimes defiant, sometimes lyrical, the play examines rape culture and the way that rape repeats itself from generation to generation.
