Jules’s Coffee Mornings are a place to get creative, to glue stringy balloon sculptures, to learn a waltz and to speak out. Inspired by the real experiences of many brave Women, join six who are now finding their voices. It’s not all just tea and biscuits.
So you see, we know what you think of us, we know what we’ve become. That’s why we’re here….we’re trying to work out together how we move on. How we survive.

The Public said:
A difficult subject beautifully acted by a very talented cast. The script was well written and highlighted domestic abuse in an effective way. Will be interested in future productions by the same company.
Very targeted but comprehensive treatment of a tragic reality, a deep societal problem that should be tackled from an early age. Highly commendable, important work. This play was also enjoyable and uniting with the dancing and tea at the end. Thank you!
It made think about how this goes on under our nose. Because we don’t see it in front of us, we forget that it happens but it does.
I loved how involved the audience were made to feel. Every story was heartbreakingly portrayed. Loved it.
Eye opening, factual, realistic, all should see it! Really loved the music and lights. Very powerful! Immersive set made the play very empathetic! Harrowing.
Hard hitting, thought provoking and excellent. This show should be widely seen. It is VERY important with a crucial message, Fantastic acting, script and production.
The Police said:
Very powerful message for victims of domestic and sexual violence to speak out! Also a powerful message to agencies and organisations to help them recognise domestic abuse and the impact it has on victims. Show was put together really well and it’s something that will stick with me.
It was very well acted. Portrayed all aspects of DV – physical and emotional. Hit home really well. I believe if we had this as part of our probationer training it would be good! Almost brought me to tears – very believable acting.
Very good – impactive. Has given me an insight into the people I see on a regular basis, both male and female.
I have attended many training sessions on domestic abuse and this show really highlights the issue. Definitely more informative than a flip chart.
Fab show. Very emotional. For new officers to watch this performance would be beneficial. We learnt a lot and will use this to improve my statements, discussions with victims of domestic violence.
The show itself was brilliantly acted. It was quite well representative of different types of abuse on all different age groups and different backgrounds. Brilliant!!!
An excellent production, very thought-provoking and impactive. As Police we see the end result and not what the Survivor of DV goes through.
This should definitely be used as a training tool for SWP.

Wonderful and raw. The realism of the performance shows people it’s better to speak out / treat everyone respectfully and lovingly.
Roedd y sioe yn emosiynol iawn ac roeddwn i’n caru y ffordd wnaethoch chi perfformio. Rydw I wedi dysgu llawer o wybodaeth sydd wedi agor fy llygaid. Diolch.
Fantastic, such a good show. This theatre company is incredible! I would love to do a series of workshops with this company.
Unbelievably touching, thought the acting was incredible and would love to see the play and any other performances again.
One of the best shows I’ve ever seen. It was amazing how you made the audience part of the performance. It was truly heartbreaking. Don’t think I stopped crying.
It was very insightful. I enjoyed it very much and I felt very moved by the story and it gave me a greater respect for people who have come forward about all types of abuse.
It was very enjoyable, was very interesting. Such good acting. Made a deep impact on me.
Amazing, educating and inspirational.

I have worked within the sector for 20 years and I found the performances really powerful and true to the stories of women I have worked with.
Professionally delivered. Powerful message but not ‘preachy’. Believable, accessible and enjoyable. Thought provoking and worth travelling from London to see.
Really strong piece of theatre that delivered a message and started discussions among us as professionals. Would love to see the performance delivered to our young people.
Incredibly powerful and moving. Really captured the nuances of control and abuse. Important viewing for anyone coming into contact with people experiencing abuse who do not understand the complexities.
Very moving, made me think about my own attitude towards abuse. Enjoyed the way the performance was delivered, better than ‘death by powerpoint’.
Show was amazing. I have never witnessed a more passionate show. I felt as though I was part of the experience. Tears in my eyes throughout. Will take lots from this performance.
Illustrated varying forms of VAWDASV in accessible way that was effective and readily understood.
Really powerful and thought-provoking showing that domestic violence comes in many forms and can happen to anyone.
