A Stage Reading of: “Bruised Not Broken” Written by Jube Charles
A Brief Synopsis of the Play-
Bruised Not Broken is a modern dramatic stage play about two seemingly different women who are enduring the same horrific struggle, domestic violence.
The play is based off the characters Lisa and Louise. Lisa is young woman from St. Lucia who lives with her boyfriend Mike. Lisa is sweet, affectionate and ambitious. Her ambitions are to finish school and become a citizen of the United States. However, Mike impedes her dreams from becoming a reality.
Louise is an older woman with an established career as a Medical Director. Her husband John is a Senior Vice President at financial firm but faces many slights from his younger superior, Paul. John despises Paul for coming into the company by means of money while he had to work his way up the ladder. John takes the frustrations he feels from work and acts them out on Louise.
The two women seem totally opposite: Lisa is a young woman trying to get her life together and Louise is an older woman with just about everything money can buy. However, when they learn of the domestic violence they both endure, the two strangers become each other’s ally’s in getting out and getting better.
