Reflecting society

Today: KLAP Theater Art Performers will restage the play entitled My Mother My Aunt — with a predominantly female cast — after successfully staging it in 2009 and raising funds for charity.

Due to popular demand, the play makes a comeback. The play highlights the menace of sexual predators in our society and is a timely issue as the abuse of women and children is sadly but steadily on the rise.

For ticket details, search for My Mother My Aunt on Facebook.
