Made in Time is made up of 5 stories of women who made up the bloodline of Jesus Christ. Women who weren’t well behaved and were unapologetic for their actions. Their stories about being ruled by tradition and being governed by men. It looks at a system that taught and encouraged women to look past how powerful they were and to settle for less. Stories about women who found their own voices and started to use them.
This piece of theatre looks at how religion dictated how women should dress, talk and act. And how these women fought the system and survived it but suffered the consequences of their actions. But given their circumstances, their challenges changed the way they thought, acted, prayed and the way they loved.
Made In Time is made up of stories of women who learnt to love themselves and how in turn, they became better lovers. Not only will these stories open up the audiences eyes to a new view of loving God, but it aims to show the perseverance and the strength of a woman.
It’s a piece of theatre that empowers and inspires, a piece that will encourage you to be the best version of yourself against all odds.
With Made In Time, Tiffani and the cast say : BE OF THE FIRE.
