Before the days of Phil Donahue or Oprah, no one talked about domestic abuse or self-esteem — it was a private and embarrassing subject. Linda, a young newlywed, is so in love with her husband Larry that she believes him when he tells her everything is her fault. Each time there is an “incident” she continues to stand by her man and wait for a better day. What other choice does she have? Finally, she reaches her limit and fights back. But at what cost to her?
Award-winning playwright Anita Simons brings her cast of actors to give voice to the intertwined issues of domestic abuse and spousal self-esteem.
A discussion after the play will be led by Lt. Misty Cedrun, San Diego Police Department Domestic Violence Unit & Family Justice Center.
There is no charge for the event, but advanced registration is required.
