Cynthia Wilson’s Battered but not Broken at Miramar Cultural Center | ArtsPark

Jan 24, 2014 - Jan 25, 2014

Poignant theatrical performance draws attention to domestic violence in first stop on 50 city tour

Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis and the City of Miramar, in collaboration with Milky Way Productions and Godz Sun Productions, present Cynthia Wilson’s inspiring and thought provoking Battered but not Broken on Friday January 24 at 8 p.m. andSaturday, January 25 at 2 and 8 p.m.   The poignant drama which draws attention to the issue of domestic violence will kick off a 50-city tour in Miramar.

Palm Beach director and filmmaker Jevon White directs a cast of talented Miami performers in the drama which chronicles the childhood journey of a woman who witnessed her mother being abused and then, as an adult, suffers abuse herself at the hands of her husband. The moving theatrical performance follows her fight to break this pattern of abuse in a story about heartache, love, forgiveness and family redemption.

“We are very pleased to bring Battered but not Broken to our community, not only as inspirational dramatic performance but as an educational forum,” said Davis. “Abuse is a cycle that can be broken and we want the women in our community who might be suffering in silence to know that there are steps they can take and people who can help them break free and rise above domestic violence.”

Wilson’s play is partially drawn from her own experience while in an abusive relationship which, for years, she kept to herself out of shame and fear. Eventually, she divorced her husband and then made peace with him when he became ill.  Afterher niece was murdered by her boyfriend, Wilson knew she couldn't remain silent anymore.  Playwright, producer and director Shelly Garrett directed the premiere of her play in Charleston West Virginia in 2012 which was followed by an encore at the request of the city at West Virginia University four months later. 

“I believe my play will enlighten the audience about domestic violence while also giving the audience hope by exploring the choices women can make and what can be done to break free from violence,” Wilson said.
