Fri 04 Jan
AILIA is back with their hard-hitting one-woman play AISHA; which explores the harrowing practice of Child Marriage in the UK.
DETAILS

“Arms pinned down at each corner of this crux – a handmaid crucified by the hands of lust.” - Aisha


The play follows an underage girl called Aisha that was forced by her parents to marry a 51-Year-Old Man when she was at the age of 14. Aisha was sold in exchange for a birde-price. - An act that was justified by certain cultural and religious traditions. The man that she was forced to marry and live with is sadistic and abusive. She is forbidden to leave the house, communicate with the outside world, shower or even bathe herself on a regular basis. Aisha is bound to domestic duty and forced to submit to any sexual act her husband wishes to bestow upon her.


How will Aisha continue to cope?
