  All in Good Fun
Peterborough - Developed by Talene Monahon It is a story all too common in the news today: a well-respected college, praised for safe and happy campus life, is suddenly exposed for hidden Greek-life hazing and sexual assault scandals. All in Good Fun (a 2013 United Solo Festival bestseller) uses the words of over twenty-five students, faculty and alumni of Dartmouth College to shed light on the paradox of school spirit and outrage these scandals expose. Developed and performed by Talene Monahon (a 2013 Second Company member and Dartmouth alumnus), this theatrical documentary opens a window into collegiate life to uncover the darkness brushed off as “all in good fun.”
