Be Aware Productions debut tour Enough is Enough reaches Newbridge Memo on February 18.
Written by Meltem Arikan and directed by Memet Ali Alabora, with music by Maddie Jones, Enough is Enough includes four female cast members who act as members of a band. The cast include; Maddie Jones, Pınar Öğün, Francesca Dimech and Emma Daman Thomas. The gritty production, which is formed as a gig, tells the stories of real people who have experienced sexual violence, through song and dark humour.
The production which opened at Barnabas Arts House on January 24 is currently touring Wales travelling to 23 other locations in the space of a month. It was described by Andy Howells as “A vibrant energy that is raw, real and emotionally charged, crossing paths with surrealism and storytelling’
Following the performance, a Shout It All Out Session will be held, where the audience will have a chance to respond to the play’s themes and questioned raised, and discuss how to take action themselves. Enough is Enough aims to start a national conversation about sexual violence and the issues raised in the production.
