Description

“Arms pinned down at each corner of this crux – a handmaid crucified by the hands of lust.” – Aisha


AISHA is the long awaited new play that explores the devastating effects of child marriage and child-sexual exploitation, written and directed by AJ.


Aisha is an underage girl that was forced by her parents to marry a 51-Year-Old Man when she was at the age of 14. Aisha was sold in exchange for an expensive dowry, a dowry that Aisha’s parents used to better themselves, in turn abandoning Aisha. - An act that was justified by certain cultural and religious traditions. The man that she was forced to marry and live with is sadistic and abusive. She is forbidden to leave the house, communicate with the outside world, shower or bathe herself on a regular basis, and denied every human right. Aisha is bound to domestic duty and forced to submit to any sexual act her husband wishes to bestow upon her.

How will Aisha continue to cope?
