Woking Debates' next topic is 'Domestic Abuse' and will be held at ChristChurch, Jubilee Square, GU21 6YG, 11am - 12.30pm on Saturday 14th March 2020.  The debate session will open with a play about domestic violence.  Kayleigh is a talented teenager whose life should be full of promise.  Instead, she finds herself in a cycle of domestic abuse from which there seems no escape until Auntie Jan helps her find a way out, after 20 long years of 'put up and shut up'.  This play written and performed by Lynn and Dave Morris of Journeymen Theatre, is based on a true story together with combined true-life experiences shared by other women.  There will be ample opportunity for local residents to share their views and concerns about the challenges we face.  Entrance is free, donations welcome.  Tea and coffee from 10.30am.  Further details from Keith Scott, email keithsc_2000@yahoo.com or see their website
