Drama students to explore issues of online identity

Carleton University student Nadia Kajouji was just 18 when she threw herself into Ottawa’s Rideau River in March 2008. In May this year, a Minnesota man was sentenced to jail for his role in encouraging her suicide after he struck up an online friendship posing as a young woman and proposed a suicide pact.

A group of UWindsor drama students will explore this tragedy in an original play to be staged October 15 and 16 in the Jackman Dramatic Art Centre’s Studio Theatre.
