In an hour of poetry, visual imagery, song and
ad slogans, poet-playwright Rhonda Pettit, director e. E.
Charlton-Trujillo and a cast of 10 women explore an unlikely
relationship between a teenage sex slave in Pakistan and a wealthy
older woman in Kentucky.
The play, Pettit says, began as a poem.
then transmuted it into a multi-sensory theatrical experience “that
juxtaposes news coverage of sexual slavery with advertising language
selling beautiful things.” She also wrote songs to introduce various
scenes. The play, she says, is neither didactic nor accusatory as it
contrasts sexual slavery with contemporary consumer culture.
