Make Do and Mend
Reflecting on childhood, motherhood and marriage, Make Do and Mend is a visually compelling and moving new play from Changing Relations. Written in verbatim, it invites its audience to experience three poignant local stories of women who have suffered and survived the trauma of Domestic Abuse.
When: Wednesday 12th October 2016
The Women’s Voices Project will be bringing a performance of Make Do and Mend to Gentoo Housing in Sunderland with an accompanying training workshop to encourage housing officers to recognise the different types of Domestic abuse that can be experienced and encourage communities to challenge unacceptable behaviours and support and listen to those who are vulnerable.
This partnership has been set up to coincide with new laws on coercive control that came into practice in December 2015.
