Welshpool will be welcoming its first tour production for some time later this month, and residents will be hoping it is the first of many.

Enough is Enough: play laughs in face of violence features exiled Turkish artists who are taking their production on a 24-stop tour across Wales within a month.

The tour starts in Newport on January 24 and will visit Welshpool Town Hall on January 28.

Enough is Enough is written by Meltem Arikan, directed by Memet Ali Alabora, with music by Maddie Jones, and includes four female cast members who act as members of a band. The cast include; Maddie Jones, Pınar Öğün, Francesca Dimech and Emma Daman Thomas.

The gritty production, which is formed as a gig, tells the stories of real people about sexual violence, through song and dark humour.

Meltem said: “Despite all the measure and precautions around the world, abuse, rape and incest cannot be stopped. No matter how hard the states, institutions and organisations try to implement sanctions, no matter how many awareness campaigns are run, individuals often ignore the pains caused by these incidents.

“The aim of this production is to show audiences how these issues are part of each and every one of our lives and that these things can happen to anyone. Using the means of theatre, music, dance, humour and surprise, we want to create at least a small feeling of awareness, a ‘what if’ moment in the audience that these issues are not far from all of us, and that we often, rather unconsciously, ignore the traumas being experienced around us.”

Following each performance, a Shout It All Out Session will be held, where the audience will have a chance to respond to the play’s themes and questions raised, and discuss how to take action themselves. Enough is Enough aims to start a national conversation about sexual violence and the issues raised in the production.
