CREAMERY DISTRICT – Local anti-sex trafficking organization Game Over hosts “Theater Against Sex Trafficking; Fundraiser for Educational Play Jane Doe in Wonderland” on Friday, July 1 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse, 1251 Ninth St..
Written by Dell’Arte MFA graduates and first staged last March, Jane Doe in Wonderland aims to prevent sex trafficking of local youth through education. The play draws parallels between the well-known story Alice In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll to explore how young men and women are lured into the world of sex-trafficking — a world that exists right here in Humboldt County.
Jane Doe is unique in how it addresses a difficult subject in a way that is accessible for a teen audience. The evening will feature a film screening of the original play followed by survivor talkback.
Suggested ticket price is $10; tickets will be available at the door. All funds raised at this event go towards touring Jane Doe in Wonderland to Humboldt County high schools in the spring of 2017.
