|The Disreputables are now accepting submissions of short works for SLUT, a festival of staged readings and discussions inspired by the political climate of 2012 - in particular, the string of controversial legislation (dubbed the “War on Women”) which serves to hinder a woman’s right to privacy, choice, and safety. SLUT is the first installment of the UNmute! Reading Series, a season-long project aimed at raising the volume on stifled voices.
