This play is centered around the sexual assault of a girl who drank too much at a high school party and went home with kids from the school football team. The story is told from multiple sides that come to light as evidence of the event appears on social media, and people start to form their own opinions. Good Kids is a chilling portrayal of the gravity of sexual assault and the permanence of social media.

This play is presented by the The Good Kids Project, an advocacy branch of the International Thespian Society Troupe #7455 from Toms River High School North in Toms River, NJ. This group of teens aims to spread awareness of the extreme importance of preventing sexual assault/harassment by organizing groups around the state to conduct performances or hold staged readings of Good Kids by Naomi Iizuka.
