The actuality of prostitution and sex trafficking will be portrayed in a play written by University of Central Oklahoma students to be performed Wednesday at OU.
“VOICED: The Real Story of Prostituted Women” is a play about street prostitution and how it is linked to sex trafficking. This play, meant for mature audiences, focuses on how many girls are forced into prostitution and sex trafficking, said Claudia Fain, UCO musical theater senior and one of the play’s writers.
“If someone sees a girl in this situation, I want them to wonder what happened to that girl to have her there,” Fain said. “To know that she’s not necessarily there by choice.”
Fain and Summer Nolan wrote this play starting last spring and finished this summer after Fain had seen a flier at her friend’s house talking about sex trafficking. Fain said she really wanted to raise awareness about sex trafficking, especially in Oklahoma.
Fain wants people to understand that many girls are manipulated into prostitution. Girls who often have nowhere else to go are given false hope and a false sense of security by pimps, Fain said.
