Description

LAKEPORT, Calif. – April 14 was chosen as Human Trafficking Awareness Day in recognition of the anti-trafficking play, “Jane Doe in Wonderland,” being presented at the Soper Reese Theatre in Lakeport on April 14 at 7 p.m.

The play’s Soper Reese debut is sponsored by the Soroptimist International of Clear Lake in partnership with Jane Doe in Wonderland, Theatre Against Sex Trafficking.

The play is a collaboration of Game Over, an anti-sex trafficking nonprofit organization founded by survivor/educator Elle Snow, and MFA playwrights Grace Booth, Kate Tobie and Erin Johnson.

Jane Doe is written for a high school audience in a manner that is nonviolent or explicit and draws parallels between the well-known story of Alice In Wonderland and how young women and men are lured into the world of sex trafficking.

It follows the most common case: that of a “Romeo Pimp” targeting a rural high school girl by pretending to be her boyfriend before bringing her to an unfamiliar city and trafficking her.

In the “red flags” of this type of trafficker but also the most commonly asked question, “Why don’t victims run?”

The hour-long performance will be followed by a survivor talk-back where audience members can ask questions and learn directly from a survivor’s experience.

Tickets are free for youth under 18 and $15 for adults.

You can purchase tickets at the Soper Reese Theatre Web site, http://www.soperreesetheatre.com/. For more information about the show please visit: www.janedoeinwonderland.com.
