Stage Play Gives Voice to Silent Killer in Communities
Detroit, MI—Everyone has something in their past they’d like to forget. But when your
past meets your present, and threatens your future, how far will one go to keep the peace? When
the Smoke Clears: Bruised, Not Broken takes place Friday, October 26 through Sunday, October
28, at The Grand Venue, 9955 Grand River, Detroit, MI, 48204. In honor of National Domestic
Violence Awareness Month, which first began in 1981 by the National Coalition Against
Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to connect battered women’s advocates across the country,
a portion of the proceeds will benefit a local domestic violence charity.
When the Smoke Clears: Bruised, Not Broken chronicles the life of one couple
who seems to have the picture perfect marriage. But when the picture becomes
somewhat distorted, and cracks are revealed in the frame, will this family rebound
from life’s fires, or be consumed by second-hand smoke?
The book, When the Smoke Clears: A Phoenix Rises, which served as inspiration
for the stage production, addresses the fires of life and techniques to douse the flames,
encouraging readers to resurrect from the ashes into victorious living. The book encourages
readers to know that, although they may be thrust into the fire, when the smoke clears, they will
emerge unscathed!
Showtimes are as follows: Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 7 p.m.; and Sunday at 3 p.m.
General admission tickets are $25. Limited vendor space is available, as well! For vendor space
or to purchase tickets online, visit Eventbrite or For more information or
interviews, email or call 313.999.6942.
