#BringBackOurGirls

In 2014 over 200 girls were abducted from their dormitories in Chibok, Nigeria. It made the headlines and bathed in its transitory moment of worldwide fame. But this moment passed and many of the girls are still gone. Since, there have been many further abductions as recently as the 26th of February 2021, where 300 girls were kidnapped. There is a displacement of over 1.3 million Nigerian children. Many are raped, killed and used as suicide bombers.

This play sheds light on the impact media’s attention has on public outcry and search for solution. The story of the mother and voices of the abducted school girls, their sorrowful taste of freedom ice cream and the haunting, prophetic sale of the newspaper man bring you the story of 2014’s Bring Back Our Girls. Silence in the news. Their moment has passed. Bring back our girls?
