The performance also will include contemporary dance and audience interaction.
Tuoi Tre Theater is co-hosting the event with the Center for Studies and Applied Sciences in Gender, Family, Women, and Adolescents. Organizers said they hope the play contributes to domestic violence prevention as one aspect of World Population Day.
