Synopsis


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

The play follows Aisha, an underage girl 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 bride-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.
