“The Defamation Experience,” an interactive diversity program, will tackle sensitive topics regarding race, religion, gender, class and the law Monday at 6 p.m. at Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards Playhouse.

The program, written by playwright and producer Todd Logan, first premiered on Nov. 6, 2010 at the Unitarian Church of Evanston in Illinois.

Since then, it has been performed more than 300 times across the United States.

“Whether we like it or not, we still have major divides in this country,” Logan said. “Most of us still go to bed at night in cities, communities and neighborhoods that are segregated by race, religion, ethnicity and/or class.”

Those attending will have the opportunity to participate in the play as the jury, as well as engage with other audience members through deliberations and a post-show discussion.
