Peer Theatre

Peer Theatre is a program entering its seventh year with Off the Lake and is focused on creating and fostering dialogue about difficult social topics across the Ohio State community, in addition putting on its annual night of one acts.  Each performance consists of 2-3 skits and will be followed by small and large group discussion facilitated by trained OTL members.  We also provide resource sheets at the end of each performance in case any audience member is interested in learning more about the topics presented or finds something within our performance triggering in any way.  Through these skits we hope to promote the four pillars of Residence Life: Community, Wellness, Learning, and Inclusion.
