Second Stage Statement Regarding Shoot the Duke Incident

To the Wesleyan Community:

Tonight a student was injured during a Second Stage sponsored performance in the Nicolson Lounge on campus. There was an accident with stage props, resulting in one actor inadvertently injuring the other. The student received immediate medical attention and is reported to be in stable condition, conscious and responsive.

The staff of Second Stage alerts the shows under our auspices to all relevant safety regulations, and ensures that shows are compliant. We are deeply upset that these measures did not prevent the event that occurred this evening.

If you have any questions, please contact any Second Stage staff member. Our contact information is on our website, 2ndstage.org.
