The new touring production of SEVEN plays at the Queens Theater in Flushing on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 8pm (Open Captioning) and Sunday, Oct. 27 at 3pm (Audio Description and ASL)

SEVEN is a documentary play by seven playwrights based on personal interviews with seven remarkable women who faced life-threatening obstacles before bringing far-reaching changes to their home countries. Each story makes the powerful and timeless statement that even in the darkest times, one person, one voice and a single act of courage, can change the lives of thousands. 

 

The play has been translated into 27 languages and performed in even more countries.
