‘ROCK AND A HARD PLACE’:  a new play from Journeymen Theatre

When it comes to domestic abuse, it’s more than blows that do the damage.

So when it comes to leaving, it’s a matter of a rock and a hard place.

Based on research from true experience, this play vividly presents the full spectrum of violence in the home, from coercive control to women’s murders at the hands of abusive partners.  Whilst the topic is sombre, ‘Rock and a hard place’ is lively as well as challenging.  Shining a spotlight on the empowering support provided to survivors and their children by women’s refuges, it is an appeal to all of us to recognise this human rights issue within our communities - and the devastating effects of cuts in refuge funding.

Duration:  65 minutes (no interval), followed by Q and A session. Age range:  17+

Skilled writers on a range of current concerns, Quakers Lynn and Dave Morris of the widely acclaimed Journeymen Theatre company are long experienced professional actors. 

In each play they have produced in their 10 years of writing and performing together, the two of them keep their audience enthralled with a dozen or more characters – and always a key issue at its heart.
