ED2011 5/5 Reviews ED2011 Theatre Reviews

Sold (SOLD)

Human trafficking is a difficult subject and so, although it deserves it, this production will never receive a standing ovation. A culmination of multimedia, dance and verbatim theatre draws us into dark tales of prostitution, slavery and oppression. The horrifying reality of what happens here in the UK made me cringe in my seat, at how little is generally known and how little is done by politicians, the police and, most importantly, the public. The statistics are depressing but there is hope; this mesmerising piece pulls the wool from our ears and our hands from our eyes. As the recent riots have shown, ignoring our problems isn’t going to help anyone. Go and see this and be moved to action.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug, 11.10am (12.30pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp298.
