The play "A Mother's Scorn" is based on sexual abuse in an affluent family's home in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. The play is powerful, enlightening, remarkably magnificent, and comical. It shows the reality that occurs in everyday life of people globally. Plus, it diverts the attention away from low-income neighborhoods that experience sexual abuse and domestic violence in the home due to socioeconomic problems in most cases. It reminds us all that when it comes to race, color, religion, power, wealth, and class sexual abuse and domestic violence affects all different kinds of people. Thus, affluent people experience the same type of abuse, but exercise the advantage to conceal their personal family issues due to money and power. Meanwhile, poor families are perceived as bait for the media, and this is why we hear more about their cases compared to affluent families. Come out and see the play you will enjoy every minute of it all.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
