written by Deborah Fortson | directed by Robbie McCauley
BODY & SOLD is based on interviews award-winning playwright Deborah Fortson conducted with teenagers — in Boston, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia — who lived through the victimizing reality of life in the sex trade.
The eight characters representing these real-life stories convey, in the survivors’ own words, what made them run from home, how they were picked up and forced into prostitution, the fear and violence they endured, the means through which they escaped, and the ways they have worked to rebuild their lives.
