From the moment she brought her stage play about domestic violence to the stage, local writer Cynthia Wilson knew it was destined for a larger audience.
Wilson's "Battered but not Broken" premiered in Charleston this past summer. The play is about a husband's need to control his wife and how he turns violent when she is chosen above him for a job. Wilson said it is based on her own experience with domestic violence. The message in the play is hope and triumph.
The play is preparing for a tour that will take it to other cities, and to kick that off, it will play in Charleston tonight, Friday and Saturday at the Capitol Center Theater.
