KOLKATA: American play "Voices of Men", which uses humour and celebrity voice impressions to highlight issues of violence against women, is now travelling to India and will also be translated to Telugu and Nepali.



American educator and public speaker Ben Atherton-Zeman, who has performed the one-man play in different parts of the world during the last ten years, says he wants to pass on a message to men in India where violence against women is a burning issue. During his ongoing maiden India tour, the 48-year-old is performing in cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Coimbatore and Vijayawada.



"I am reaching out to as many people as possible with the performances in different cities. The response has been very good and a youth theatre group in Hyderabad is translating it in Telugu while it is also being translated into Nepali langauge," Zeman said.



During his Kolkata trip he showcased his engaging play at the American Center addressing issues of sexual assault, domestic violence, objectification and sexual harassment.
