a little about..

THE LIVING PLAY

The Living is Colleen’s latest play. For this play she travelled to several African countries to create a female centered heroic myth based on the actual stories of women and girls who had survived trauma in post conflict zones. Everywhere in Africa where Colleen travelled women were rebuilding. What struck her profoundly in Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa, women, despite having lost all of their family members or their husbands, widowed, many of them HIV positive, have taken in orphans. If any of their own children survived also them, and they’re rebuilding the community.
