Sarah, a Nigerian teenager who was trafficked for sex across Europe, later told her outreach worker in Canada, “People need to know about this suffering.” They need to know about the thousands and thousands of girls whose lives are stolen from them, who are brutalized every day and forced to perform dehumanizing sex acts. THE WALK is about the struggle of three average people to tell the stories of these trafficked girls.  The producers of THE WALK want to reach a broad audience and encourage them to take their own personal or collective action against the scourge of sex trafficking.

Background

PACT-Ottawa works in association with Moon Dog Theatre to present Catherine Cunningham-Huston’s THE WALK, a play about sex trafficking.

THE WALK  had a tremendously successful run at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, June 16-25, 2011:  so successful that the play won Best in Venue and the producers were able to present an additional performance on June 26th!  The show was also performed before an international audience at the Women’s Worlds 2011 conference in Ottawa on July 4.  Congratulations to the playwright, director, cast, crew and volunteers.
