Based on true stories, five high school girls traumatically thrust together, are forced to collectively overcome their fears to find their inner strength. Laura Gosheff's PHOENIX RISING is a visceral new play that uses movement and poetry to expose the turmoil of abuse of women and the need to stand up and speak out. PHOENIX RISING explores the darker sides of love, sex, family and secrets. More information: www.PhoenixRisingThePlay.org

"Over the last eight years, I have spoken with hundreds of women who have endured emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. In an attempt to circumvent the cultural default of victim-blaming and victim-shaming, they keep their secrets and maintain their silence. I wrote PHOENIX RISING to give them voice. It is my highest hope that the humor and humanity of PHOENIX RISING will alter the way society sees and treats victims of gender violence; that it will catalyze discussion and motivate people to get involved in creating change through intervention and activism."Phoenix Rising, Writer/Director Laura Gosheff
