SOAR Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships

Behind Closed Doors, the riveting original play written by 15 survivors of domestic violence and members of SOAR, returned to a virtual audience on May 12, 2021. This play, which premiered in 2012 and has been performed to sold-out audiences throughout the years, is a true account of domestic violence, hope and survival.  The play draws audiences into the lives of survivors to dispel the stigmas of this often misunderstood abuse.
 Intended for mature audiences only: Explicit Content, Strong Language
