Amnesty International and Relief Theatre are proud to present ‘Even If We Lose Our Lives’, an insightful and challenging play based on real-life interviews with female Afghan women’s rights defenders conducted by actor and human rights activist Christine Bacon. ‘Even If We Lose Our Lives’ explores the difficulties faced by women in modern Afghanistan through the stories and words of Parween, founder of the only girls’ school in Laghman province; Manizha, the American-raised organiser of a women’s shelter; and Dr D, an anonymous gynaecologist operating in an unnamed province.
Each performance will be followed by a short talk and Q&A session led by Amnesty activists and other guest speakers. All proceeds will go to Amnesty International to help the charity continue its defence of human rights around the world.
