There are an estimated 200,000 child soldiers fighting in wars in Africa right now.
It is predicted that the number of people living with HIV in South Africa will exceed 6 million by 2015, by which time around 5.4 million South Africans will have died of AIDS.
In January 2008 Amnesty International issued a plea for international pressure to stop the scheduled executions of 11 people by stoning in Iran.
What if this was all happening here and not on the other side of the world? How would you live with your son if he was a child soldier? If you and your partner were both HIV+ and you only had enough money for one prescription course how would you decide who gets it? How do you help your sister prepare to be stoned?
From debbie tucker green comes a play prepared to ask dangerous questions of the audience.
