Global Voices Birthday: Deux Femmes on the Edge de la Revolution Reading, 24 April 2020 7.15pm
Global Voices Theatre mark their second birthday, and the work of the brilliant global playwrights they work with, with a full length reading of France-Luce Benson’s Deux Femmes on the Edge de la Revolution and a topical discussion with the playwright and other special guests.
A pig is sacrificed, a goddess seduces a young bride, and enslaved and self-liberated Africans on the island of San Domingue rise up to end slavery and destroy colonialism. The epic story of the Haitian Revolution is told from the perspective of two women who form an unlikely alliance. Like the rebels, their journey will forever change the course of history.
