HURRIED STEPS by the award-winning and renowned Italian playwright, Dacia Maraini is a powerful tool for raising awareness of violence against women and girls.

The book also includes an interview with New Shoes Theatre’s Artistic Director, Nicolette Kay. 

The Kubra story was written for our Hurried Steps performances in Sydney and performed with grant support from the British Council & the Arts Council of Great Britain.
