ABOUT THE PLAY: Seven, A Documentary Play is a dramatic work commissioned in 2006 by the Washington-based Vital Voices Global Partnership, who tasked a septet of playwrights, including MacArthur Foundation “Genius” grant-winner Anna Deavere Smith, with interviewing and dramatizing the harrowing stories of seven extraordinary women who have labored in recent decades to improve the living conditions of women in Africa, Central America, Europe, and Southeast, Central, and Western Asia.

Inspired by these tales of triumph, the playwrights gave voice to these remarkable stories of leadership and fierce courage and through the powerful medium of theatre these seven women’s stories come to life for us, illustrating that in diverse corners of the world women are overcoming tremendous odds to advance peace, justice and freedom.

SEVEN has been translated into 23 languages, with over 300 performances staged in 32 countries – and counting.
