Shane and Maggie: An Intimate Look at Domestic Violence

Sara Naomi Lewkowicz

Domestic violence is a largely invisible crime. We usually only hear it muffled through walls, and we usually only see it manifested in the faded yellow and purple bruises of a woman who “walked into a wall” or “fell down the stairs.” It is rarely limited to one event, and it rarely stops. 

“Shane and Maggie” seeks to portray domestic abuse as a process, as opposed to a single incident, examining how a pattern of abuse develops and eventually crests, as well as its short- and long-term effects on victims, their families, and their abusers.

The show is presented by Alexia Foundation with the support of the US Consulate General, Sydney.
