Song For A Sanctuary



By Rukhsana Ahmad                 

Inspired by the true story of Balwant Kaur, a woman murdered by her husband in a refuge, it explores the painful dilemma of a South Asian woman forced to seek help from a women’s refuge.

Rukhsana Ahmad’s play about marital violence is an intelligent, absorbing study of an Asian woman trapped in tradition. Too many issue-centred dramas lack the complex ring of truth but this is an absorbing exception’
The Independent

Rukhsana Ahmad and actor/director Rita Wolf set up Kali Theatre Company to produce Song For A Sanctuary in 1991

Song for a Sanctuary was included in Six Plays by Black and Asian Women published by Aurora Metro
