The play chronicles the life of an African woman as she endures and survives an abusive relationship at hands of her husband. Her resilience is seen through her ability to provide for her family on a meager income and with little to no financial support from her estranged husband.

Julia is an African woman and survivor of a broken relationship and now alone is forced to provide for her family, African Women are as Strong as the Baobab Tree is a call to arms to inspire and mobilize women of all cultures. Although an African story, this piece highlights serious women's issues that are part of a universal struggle for all women.
