‘ One of the most powerful and urgent pieces of human rights theatre ever made’ The Herald
On 16 December 2012, a young woman boarded a bus in Delhi heading for home. What followed, changed their lives and countless others’ forever. Internationally acclaimed playwright and director Yaël Farber’s award-winning play cracks open the cone of silence around women whose lives have been shattered by gender-based violence. With an extraordinary ensemble cast of seven from India, Farber brings a blistering evocation of that terrible night and the ripples of change it set in motion. Tearing away the shame that keeps the survivors silent, Nirbhaya is a voyage into a tapestry of personal testimonies.
