After four spell-binding performances in 2017, Agape Theatre Company returns to Courtyard Theatre for ONE Night ONLY with their production of ASYLUM. The first play in their “Restoration” trilogy, written and directed by Mark Grey.Bruised and broken, three women arrive at The Haven in search of sanctuary. They are from different cultures, different worlds, with different experiences. But they share one desire and that is to be healed. Warden Sykes has been entrusted with their care, but she too is damaged, grieving and angry. She has the power, a score to settle and she is waiting.
Asylum explores the relationship between justice, punishment & reconciliation and travels with three broken lives on their journey of healing, rehabilitation and acceptance.
