6 women meet in a support group. It’s for Survivors (not the Destiny’s Child kind). They’re not really sure what kind, but they’re figuring it out. Together.
Award nominated SpeakUp Theatre present RESIDUE, an electrifying ode to women’s stories of surviving abuse. Wading through the mess, the chaos, the joy and the pain of picking up the pieces, RESIDUE explores what it means to “survive” and celebrates the friendships found in the wreckage.
RESIDUE has been created in conjunction with SPEAKUP SURVIVORS, a two year lived experience leadership project providing creative workshops for women who have experienced domestic and sexual abuse. With thanks to Surviving Economic Abuse, Manchester Women’s Aid, IChooseFreedom & Clarion Housing Group. To the women who shared their stories and the women who are still finding their voice.
