April 14-17, 2016

Director Rachel Walzer and producer Sarajean Rossitto bring to Tokyo the true stories of seven women who bravely fought for the well-being of women, families, and children around the globe: in Russia, protecting women from domestic violence; in Cambodia, rescuing girls from human trafficking; in Guatemala, giving a voice to the poor; in Afghanistan, empowering rural women; in Nigeria and Pakistan, fighting
for women’s education and rights; and in Northern Ireland, promoting peace and equality.

From the Producer
After viewing a reading of SEVEN in Prague in 2014, Sarajean was
determined to bring dramatic performance of SEVEN to Tokyo. Marrying
her commitment to social justice and love of theatre, Sarajean decided
to make Tokyo part of the global 2016 campaign to raise awareness
about issues facing women in Japan as well as human rights violations
around the world.

About SEVEN
SEVEN is based on interviews conducted with seven women activists and
was written by seven women playwrights - Paula Cizmar, Catherine
Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deavere
Smith and Susan Yankowitz. SEVEN is presented with gratitude to Vital
Voices Global Partnership.

SEVEN is being performed as part of the global March to March, more
than 100 (possible) performances worldwide will spotlight
International Women’s Month. SEVEN aims to raise awareness about the
issues women face all around the world by telling the stories of real
women who have survived challenges and are helping better women’s
lives. SEVEN was developed with support from the Vital Voices Global
Partnership.
