For Sale: an original one-woman show exploring sex trafficking in the US
Through a series of monologues the audience gains insight into this multi-faceted epidemic running rampant in this nation. The characters although fictitious, are based on six years of extensive research with much of the information gained through first hand interviews with individuals who are involved in human trafficking and those combating the issue.
My hope for “For Sale” is to create a platform for dialogue; to make space for the many individuals that are intertwined in the world of sex slavery, including: survivors, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, social workers, safe house directors, lawyers, and perpetrators, among others. I want an audience to leave my play acknowledging that sex trafficking is happening in their backyard, that everyone plays a part in this modern day slavery, and that it is up to them to help combat human trafficking. Having seen “For Sale,” and participated in its talk-back, the audience will be equipped with knowledge, resources, and clear steps they can take to becoming modernday abolitionists. On a more basic level, ”For Sale” is a voice for the unheard, for the hundreds of thousands who have been silenced through force, fraud, and coercion.
