If you ever need support, go find the nearest bench of grandmothers sitting and chatting.If you can't find any, there's a play titled "Rouge," by Sara Zein, which emulates it for you. The play was part of Action for Hope's first edition of Awan Festival, which focuses on life as a Syrian refugee in Lebanon, through artistic initiatives. The entire play is made up of 11 women, but only seven of them are on stage.In the end, Zein decided to go with it and let them tell their stories, acting more as a guide.The audience happily laughed along when the choreographed motions of women embroidering matched up with the story being told by an off-stage woman's voice. They however fell solemn when the issue of child marriage was brought up by Marwa, a 19-year-old mother of two, and Darwish, Marwa's mother. The fact that these women were not professional actors was visible, but that did not take away from their enthusiasm, and some of the women truly glowed in the spotlight, which Zein already saw in the production of the play.
