Show Some Skin brings us closer

Show Some Skin is a student-led initiative that invites members of the Notre Dame community to share narratives about identity and difference. We solicit anonymous monologues written by students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and select a compelling sample of these stories to stage as an annual public performance.

Show Some Skin is, however, more than just a theatrical production. It is a project – a movement – to engage the ND community in more meaningful, often deeply personal, dialogue about race, gender, sexuality, class, and other aspects of identity. We strive to make Notre Dame a more welcoming place for all.
