All Ruth wanted was for her son to have a better life than her. Simple. But it’s not easy. Ruth narrates what she went through and how she sometimes feels that she can get out of this narrow path of poverty she got into, and also that sometimes she can’t.

The circumstances and the people around her are sometimes worth their weight in gold and sometimes they leave her with nothing but the clothes on her back. This theatrical work aims to search and find its culmination in the current Maltese poverty situation. The story is fictional, but the stories and characters can be encountered every day. Beyond statistics, social benefits, low wages and inflation, sometimes poverty is not just a matter of money. The poor are not always the ones who do not have anything to eat, but also the ones who have the resources but do not know how to use them.

On Friday 14th October (after the performance), a Taħdita Teatru will be organised with director Toni Attard, writer Andre Mangion, and YMCA representative Anthony Camilleri, moderated by Leanne Ellul to discuss the process behind this play, from page to stage.
