Sex trafficking play hits close to home

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on September 21, 2012 at 8:45 am

The fast-moving, episodic play features a Canadian lawyer working undercover to expose a human trafficking ring based in Thailand. To win his case, Jason (Kennedy) must convince his key witness, a young prostitute known only as Number 18 (Chew), to risk her life and testify.

In partnership with Raise Their Voice, Burnt Thicket Theatre has presented She Has A Name in 13 cities and seven provinces across Canada.

She Has a Name is a powerful piece of theatre that both thrilled and inspired audiences during our successful world premiere,” said director Stephen Waldschmidt. “We look forward to bringing this timely story to thousands more Canadians from Halifax to Victoria.”

“The play will open the eyes of Canadians to the reality that there are millions of innocent victims in the world today who live in these brutal conditions,” added Mark Wollenberg, the Western Canadian representative of International Justice Mission Canada, an agency that works overseas to secure justice for victims of human trafficking.
