So the Ghosts Can Speak
 
So the Ghosts Can Speak

I had the pleasure of attending the opening night of “So the Ghosts Can Speak”...a powerful, brutally honest, provocative play that narrates the painful and poignant voices of women from diverse backgrounds.

The play seeks to reveal the silent voices of women who have been victimized by sexual, physical and emotional abuse – opening a candid dialogue for women to share the complexities of their sexual experiences; while breaking the silence of the traumatic incidents of sexual abuse and physical violence at the hands of men.

Through this heartbreaking, yet inspiring piece of work, the writer and director, Francesca Andre, seeks to liberate and empower women by encouraging them to tell their stories….opening the door for healing the wounds of intimate injustice.

Francesca Andre, a native of Haiti, started writing the play during her academic career at Fairfield University. She felt compelled to share the stories of women, who lived like “ghosts” – feeling afraid to confront the painful reality of their lives. Andre tackles a taboo subject and manages to turn tragedy to triumph with “Ghosts.” She has set a platform for women to expose the hidden truths of sexual abuse and inequality.

Andre’s vision exemplifies how women need a space to reflect, affirm and share their stories without feeling afraid.

“So the Ghosts Can Speak” features seventeen amazing actresses. On April 15, 2009, the following actresses performed at Bunker Hill Community College: Jennifer Sabers, Elizabeth Gee, Mavis Martin and Hiroko Tanaka. For details on future performances, please go to www.nociallc.com, www.myspace.com/nociallc or contact Francesca Andre at (347)663-1999.

  Congratulations!! Using your talent to educate the community is so powerful!! As a domestic violence advocate I would love to work with you .   
 
  To write the script of such a poignant subject, is hard to illustrate on stage play, and more so to portray in a way, which is easily grasped in a memorable and elegant fashion. Francesca is truly an erudite talent.   
 
  I attended the performance of Ghosts Can Speak. I was riveted on my chair for the entire duration of the play as the actors delivered a powerful performance.. Francesca addressed the issue of violence and rape in a manner that I never seen before on stage. Bravo Francesca...The message is great! Good work. A must see!   
 
  RAW!! Inspirational. It just goes to show you that acknowledging the truth in all instances, is essential for keeping sanity. The dialog in this play can definitely teach us all something. Can't wait to be in the front row!   
 
  Way to go Francesca! It sounds like an amazing play (:   
 
  Love returns the blind man
