SEVEN is a riveting documentary play by seven female playwrights based on the real stories of seven remarkable women who faced life-threatening obstacles before bringing heroic changes to their home countries of Pakistan, Nigeria, Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Russia and Cambodia.
The stories capture the women’s struggles and triumphs over resistance, death threats, entrenched norms and pervasive violence. Since the premiere in 2008, these inspiring tales have been performed in over 30 countries. SEVEN reminds us that even in the darkest times, one person, one voice and a single act of courage can change the lives of thousands.
SEVEN is written by Paula Cizmar, Catherine Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deavere Smith and Susan Yankowitz.
