Major outlets promote play sympathetic to sexual predators

Posted BY: Kelen McBreen

The Washington Post, New York Times, and New York Post all posted articles last week promoting and praising a controversial new play that is sympathetic to pedophiles.

Premiering recently at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater and now running at New York City’s Playwrights Horizons, playwright Bruce Norris’ latest work is called Downstate.

Downstate focuses on the lives of convicted pedophiles and sex offenders boarding together in a group home.

Labeled “brilliant” by WaPo, the play attempts to evoke sympathy for the sex criminal characters while a victim of one of the pedophiles is the play’s antagonist.
