A Woman’s Worth Productions is aiming to raise awareness and support for abused women through their play titled “A Woman’s Worth” that will be presented at the Wortham Theater Center in Houston on October 29 and 30.
The plot of the play focuses on the story of Diane Deinevere, a woman who marries the man of her dreams only to be put through much more than she bargained for behind the scenes.
More than just entertainment, the plays presented by A Woman’s Worth Productions are created to highlight the struggles faced by abused women in order to promote awareness, women’s self-esteem and to help fund women’s outreach programs.
A Woman’s Worth Productions was founded by Kenyarda McCarter in December 2010 after she left an abusive relationship and checked into a women’s shelter. During counseling, she was able to connect to the different stories of women who had experienced the same pain she did.
“When I looked at the statistics, I found that every seventeen seconds a teenage girl is abused by a man who tells her he loves her, while every thirty minutes a woman looses her life to a man who tells her he loves her,” said McCarter.
After receiving her degrees, McCarter began writing plays for her church and soon after partnered with Through the Fire Ministries to begin auditions in the Houston area.
Through the proceeds from the plays, both organizations work together with women’s shelters to provide Christian counseling for women, care packages for women in prison and assist young girls in school.
“The message of the play is to bring awareness to the types of abuse that different women encounter,” said McCarter. “I hope that by women seeing the characters, this play will mirror what goes on behind closed doors.”
Tickets for “A Woman’s Worth” go on sale in September and can be purchased in the Hobby Center box office.
