Description

Using personal stories and first-hand accounts, Faultlines is a play built on truth. Exploring the roots of violent relationships, Saltmine Theatre Company investigates the very first tremors of toxicity – control, gaslighting and stifling romance – which often lead to physical violence. By telling the stories of the men and women who have liberated themselves from domestic abuse, we reclaim their narratives and celebrate their bravery – empowering audiences to notice these signs and equip themselves for escape. This is not about fault after all, but freedom.

Few people are even aware of the faultlines in a landscape till the earthquake occurs. The same is true of relationships, where even those in a relationship can be reluctant to recognise abuse.Faultlines dramatises four stories of domestic abuse constructed from the accounts of victims.
