The Torn Curtains
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Torn Curtains - one of the city's oldest theater groups - aims to create awareness, promote early detection, and provide solidarity to those affected via this powerful and emotionally-charged performance centred around the theme of breast cancer, which celebrates resilience, courage and hope.

The play consists of two compelling acts:

"Don't Edit Me" (22 minutes) - A gripping portrayal of four women in a breast cancer support group, who, through shared anguish and insecurity, find the strength to confront their challenges.

"Goodbye" (16 minutes) - A raw and visceral monologue by a woman facing breast cancer, who is also plagued by alcoholism. Her harrowing journey is deeply moving and inspires introspection.

We are working towards staging this play every day in a different venue, through the month of October 2023.
