Girl Be Heard and Human Rights Watch Present World Premier

Breaking the Silence with Girl Be Heard, highlights a number of global issues faced by millions of women daily. Told through a series of monologues and songs from individual perspectives, the performances are based on fact and expose the greater universal truths. Human trafficking, child marriage, domestic violence, rape as a war crime, issues of refugees, the right to a voice and the right to ownership and education are some of the issues addressed. With a wonderful star cast from stage and cinema, the production is a spotlight on the work of Human Rights Watch, as the horrors continue to flourish in darkness and silence.

Breaking the Silence with Girl Be Heard, is evidence that theatre’s healing power transcends borders. This ground-breading collaboration, between Girl Be Heard and Human Rights Watch, is elevating the stories of survivors to the global stage, by harnessing the voices of actors, activists and advocates from around the world. Together, we are breaking the cycle of silence that perpetuates gender-based violence,” said Jessica Morris, CEO of Girl Be Heard.
