She suffered his abuse for years, and now she’s in prison for his murder.

This darkly humorous play is the story of how a Newfoundland survivor of a “little domestic situation” discovers her own strength and self-worth through one extreme act.

Nevertheless, she persisted…

In prison for killing her husband – a man who has abused her for years- her journey as a wife, mother, daughter, but most of all as a woman, is revealed in her interactions with unseen cops and a parade of talk show hosts. Through dark humour, flights of fancy, and dramatic flashbacks that reveal her painful past, an unforgettable and deeply truthful portrait emerges before the audience.
