sam. productions have partnered with White Ribbon Australia to bring Dolores to regional NSW audiences in March 2019.
Dolores is a 45 minute, one act play written by Edward Allan Baker.
It is a portrait of two sisters, Sandra and Dolores, who are caught in repeating patterns of domestic abuse and dealing with it in very different ways. The play addresses the difficulties women experience in speaking out as well as the multitude of barriers faced by women in accessing support. Unfortunately DV is very prevalent in all communities and country NSW is no exception.
The Samuels sisters hope to use the play as a platform to encourage conversation about Domestic Violence. They will be donating 10% of all ticket sales to White Ribbon Australia and will invite local ambassadors to the performances across the state.
The girls also wish to help audiences understand that their unique set of skills can help to effect change in their community whether they work in schools, local businesses, health services or at a government level.
