Pollyana Paradox by Stephenie Georgia Shetland Arts

    • Arts

Shetland Arts in collaboration with Shetland Womens Aid, Islesburgh Drama Group and the Shetland Compass Centre present Pollyanna Paradox, a play written for radio by Stephenie Georgia with support from survivors of domestic abuse in Shetland.


PLEASE NOTE: 'Pollyanna Paradox' includes potentially upsetting themes with references to domestic abuse including coercive control, physical and sexual violence.


If you have been affected by this production and feel you require support please visit www.shetlandwa.org or www.compasscentre.org



A Joint Statement from Stephenie Georgia, Shetland Women’s Aid, The Compass Centre, Shetland Arts and Islesburgh Drama Group:

The radio broadcast of this play on BBC Radio Shetland did not go ahead as planned as BBC regulations lead to the removal of two key scenes, which compromised its integrity and no longer gave an accurate representation of the survivors’ voices who supported the creation of this work. Instead, the play has been broadcast on Shetland Arts’ channels with the agreement and support of the BBC Radio Shetland team - we hope you will join us, listen in, and share this important work far and wide to support the end of gender-based violence. It is imperative that women’s lived experiences and voices are not silenced, and that we all check our bias, knowledge, and understanding to enable necessary change in our culture.
