Kayleigh is a talented teenager whose life should be full of promise. Instead, she finds herself in a cycle of abuse from which there seems no escape until Aunty Jan helps her find a way out, after twenty long years of ‘put up and shut up’.
Based on a true story, combined with true life experiences shared by other women, the play explores the complex nature of domestic abuse and reveals the impact of funding cuts. It is an appeal to all of us to recognise and highlight this major human rights issue.
