ESU’s Theater Department includes this message, outlining the plot of the piece and its aim:

“Inspired by true events, the interweaving stories of a group of college students reveal what is really going on behind the zoom windows where we currently dwell. Themes of racism, mental health, economic disparities in technology and education, sexual assault, and self-harm overlap and intersect. Germ free it defies social distancing to find many points of connection in a day in the life of students at a mid-sized university.”

The following warning is included:

“While not graphically depicted, this film includes subject matter about racism, mental health, economic disparities in technology and education, sexual assault, and self-harm.”

According to information available on YouTube, “Windows” was conceived and directed by Stephanie Daventry French and written by John Lauri, Dianara Vazquez and Stephanie Daventry French. Contributing writers include Will Baretto, Brian Bollinger, J. Dana Gallo, Emily Anne McDermott, Vanessa Smith, Mahesh Trivedi, Gabriella Williams and the entire cast.

This piece was collaboratively created, based on true stories and experiences shared by the company, the names have been changed and actors are playing parts which may have been written by and about others, or be a compilation of stories.
