In the documentary play, BODY & SOLD, winner of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist’s Award, we hear the stories of eight teen survivors and the stark realities in five US cities.
“Many people hear the words ‘sex trafficking’ and believe it’s something happens that happens somewhere else, in a foreign land. Body & Sold is a play that seeks to dispel this belief and show the community that sex trafficking happens more often than not in our own backyard. ” – Kristin Santa Maria, Bristol Observer
THE BODY & SOLD PROJECT
Over 100,000 young Americans run away from home every year. Within 48 hours of being on the street these teens will be approached by a man posing as a friend, offering food, shelter, and love. Most of the time, he will turn out to be a pimp and will sell the young person for commercial sex. The BODY & SOLD Project is a theater and community initiative to raise awareness about the epidemic of commercial sexual exploitation of our young people and develop strategies to combat it.
