Seven is a documentary play, written by Paula Cizmar, Catherine Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deavere Smith and Susan Yankowitz, that has been performed world wide. The play is based upon seven women from around the globe. These women have shared their stories of  individual tragedies and hardships they have faced and how they overcame them to promote hope for women who are in similar situations. 


Seven in Chautauqua

Modeled after Seven, Seven in Chautauqua is written by Caeli Faisst. This play is about seven women that reside in Chautauqua County. The play talks about these women's struggles in life and what they have done in order to overcome their struggles. This play was created to instill hope into women of Chautauqua County that hear their stories and have gone, or are going through, something similar.


Seven in Chautauqua has partnered with multiple community service organizations in Chautauqua County to offer a pathway for women with struggles, similar or different to these women, to reach out and obtain help.

True Strength Ministries

"We believe God brings certain people into our lives for a reason.  Sometimes it is to help us to see something new and wonderful; sometimes it is to encourage us and strengthen our purpose, and sometimes, it is just to remind us that we are never alone and that it is important to share our smiles, our dreams, and even our tears.  Whatever reason He had in bringing us together, we are very glad he did." 10/10/2010
