HERstory Through HIS Eyes is a story of strength, overcoming and new possibilities. The story centers on Kim and Tina, two women who have survived physical and sexual abuse. Kim is learning to move on from a marriage crumbled by physical and mental abuse. When her husband returns claiming to be a changed man, she struggles with forgiving him and forgiving herself. Tina has met the man of her dreams. Still, she is having a hard time being open and intimate with him. A survivor of sexual assault, she struggles with trust and vulnerability in the face of this new relationship. Both women find healing through their friendship and the regular poetry night hosted by their friend David at his local club. Supporting Tina and Kim in their journey inspires David. He shares these stories that give us insight into the lives of survivors. Enhanced by poetry and tied together by narration and song, this play seeks to challenge attitudes, values, behaviors, and misconceptions about sexual assault and domestic violence in hopes to decrease assaults and increase awareness.
