Five women speak and sing their stories in their own words, stories of the unseen fallout of the war on terror. These are stories of real women from cultures as varied as Senegal, Jordan, Palestine and the English Midlands.

After each performance, Victoria Brittain chairs a debate discussing the issues raised during the evening. The panels include Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Gareth Pierce, Manjinder Virk, Riz Ahmed and Moazzam Begg.Performers Juliet Stevenson, Phyllida Law, Gemma Jones, Simone James, Harriet Ladbury, Diana Hardcastle, Manjinder Virk, Anna Dennis (soprano), Carole Wilson (mezzo soprano), Olly Coates (cello).
