About Putting A Face On

‘I just want to be happy and loved, I know I sound like a fridge magnet but it’s true‘ Putting A Face On is a funny, dark and ultimately empowering monologue about gaslighting* and how, despite positive strides towards gender equality, domestic abuse remains prevalent within so many women’s daily lives. As the Domestic Abuse Bill returns to the House of Lords for a second reading, as part of the ongoing campaign to offer further rights and protection to survivors through greater access to the safety and support they need, this brand new commission performed by Susan Wokoma offers insight into the nuances of emotional abuse, victim blaming and control. Recommended for ages 14+. Includes frequent use of strong language and themes of domestic abuse. *Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse where a person or group makes someone question their sanity, perception of reality, or memories. People experiencing gaslighting often feel confused, anxious, and unable to trust themselves.
