In partnership with Raise Their Voice, Burnt Thicket Theatre is touring this crucial play across Canada. Between May and October a team of five actors and one stage manager is presenting some 80 performances at Fringe Festivals and other theatre venues from Halifax to Victoria.
The play tells the story of a young teenage girl, known only as Number 18, who is forced to work as a prostitute in a Bangkok brothel and the Canadian lawyer named Jason posing as a john in order to collect evidence to bring the perpetrators of the crimes to justice. Though this story is imagined, real stories like this are lived every day around the world. Through the play we hope to stir thousands more Canadians to become “abolitionists.”
This play brings the nameless victims of trafficking into our western world and makes them all too close and real to ever forget. You must see it. – Mark Wollenberg, International Justice Mission Canada.
“She Has a Name [is] a polished, well-acted production of a play with an urgent message about human trafficking.” – Pat Donnelly, Theatre Critic, Montreal Gazette<https://twitter.com/patstagepage/status/214174265040314368>
