SWEETS AND CHOCOLATES
by Shazia Ashraf 
Presented as part of RADA Festival
London June/July 2016

Who do we trust? 
Nadia is a cricket obsessed young Pakistani girl, M'Bilia is a devout church goer in the Congo and Catherine is the headmistress of an English private school.  With movement and music three women's stories from three different cultures are interwoven to explore the effects of child abuse on three seemingly unconnected lives.

This is timely, poetic and provocative piece of storytelling asks powerful questions about the abuse of power and the need to speak the truth. 

For me theatre should be something that challenges us and allows us to ask questions and begin conversations. Paedophilia is evidently a difficult subject to discuss on a public platform, but if we don’t converse how we going to make any changes?’
