Repetition. Chores. Work. Dinner. Waltz.

Playing it safe. Raised voices. Sharp noises.


Trapped behind high walls and closed doors, each day a woman must find tricks and tactics to divert her husband’s growing anger. She has a plan to save herself and the women who follow her. She must weave an imaginary world to escape reality. They must escape.

Following an exciting research and development period, we will be presenting a play reading of the final script of Shahrazad live on Zoom and Facebook on the 29th October 2020 at 7:00pm.
Please log on and watch the reading @KomolaCollective.


Ahead of the performance, we will be hosting a panel discussion: Insights into Domestic Violence, broadcast from our Facebook page on the 20th October at 7:00pm
​Please join the discussion @KomolaCollective.
