The play “Uyandığımda Sesim Yoktu”, one of the world’s most indoor games and watching the attack, meets its audience in Turkey with the director of Tamer Levent.
The whole of our predicament is expressed in the constricted throats of these two women, tightened with grief, fury, and frustration. The audi- ence carries the unanswered questions with them as they leave with the last line in their ears: ‘Huh, huh, huh, we’ve come so far now and we’ll never go back to …’
Uyandığımda Sesim Yoktu (Mouthpiece) is a play written for the rights of women who overtly or covertly suffered oppression, women who are unable to express themselves because of various fears and limitations imposed on them by the society, silenced, battered, even killed in cold blood. It’s story of a woman writer who questions violence against women and the place of women in society in the context of how similar her life is to her recently deceased mother’s.
