About The Event

Event Organiser - Legacy Arts and Film Lab

STRANGE VOICES - STRANGE VOICES looks at the social pressures to go back to the abusive marriage. The stigma that faces divorced persons, ridicule from family and friends and the psychological war on what is socially acceptable and what's right for the abused. The play looks at the struggles through the separation, attempts to reconcile and the place of the child in the marriage. It brings out at all the voices, the challenges, the new pressures and freedoms. The search for oneself, for God, for solace and the emptiness and loneliness that comes with divorce. Zippy's acting as one woman play is so real one can actually feel the presence of the other characters. It is an emotional journey on stage like never before. The story fuses drama and music in an emotional journey that takes everyone into a thought of: "If she were your sister, daughter, mother, would you still hate divorce? " Divorce is death. Marriage is life. Divorce is emptiness, loneliness. Divorce is ridicule, stigma Divorce is madness, Divorcees are outcast. Divorce is death. To live again is a rebirth. Tickets ...
