She Has A Name - Cdn. Tour

Published: Sunday, April 22, 2012

She Has A Name 12-city Canadian tour bares chilling truths about human trafficking in sex trade

An international cast of five actors play dual roles in gritty, fast-paced, suspense filled drama

Adds Waldschmidt, “I believe audiences will relate to and be deeply impacted by this play on two levels – one the visceral experience of the story’s emotional, roller coaster journey that will ‘get under their skin’ and motivate people to take action against human trafficking.  The second is inspiration to keep on fighting the good fight – gained from the seemingly insurmountable challenges faced by both Jason and Number 18.”

Playwright Andrew Kooman comments, “The tragedy of Number 18's plight in She Has A Name highlights that real justice needs to be secured for the real victims around the world. It also suggests that justice can only be realized if real people know, care and take informed and decisive action. Telling stories that remind us of the immeasurable value of human life is the first step of many to transform real world stories of injustice and tragedy into stories of redemption and hope.”

 

She Has A Name has five actors playing 10 roles. The doubling of roles helps connect the Bangkok Thailand setting with Canada and the reality that trafficking persons for sex slavery is taking place right here in Canada. The underlying story line is that every victim and every perpetrator connected in the human traffic web is a human being that could easily touch anyone of us.
