Screaming in Silence

From the award-winning professional writer and director Saleh Sepas, Screaming in Silence is a Theatre of the Oppressed presented by Parastoo Theatre Team, a group of Afghan refugees who are based in Malaysia.

With the sound purpose of raising awareness about the issue of child marriage in Afghanistan, the play which is set in an Afghan village portrays the life of a young girl who is forced into marriage with a much older man by her father and by the whole community around her. She tries to fight for her freedom, but to no avail ultimately.

Through Screaming in Silence, Saleh Sepas wants to give his audience a full picture of the real-life situation faced by women and girls in Afghanistan who do not have any power and an effective tool to escape from their oppression in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, he wishes to provide the immigrants with a platform to voice their fears and frustrations as well as cultivating their talents, which is why he came about forming the Afghan refugee Parastoo Theatre.
