On behalf of PACT-Ottawa, RCMP, AlterEgo and Crime Prevention Ottawa, you are invited to:
An awareness raising play on Human Trafficking for sexual exploitation.
This play has had a great success in the United Kingdom. It tells the story of a group of three students who discover the diary of a girl named Chelsea. Chelsea was a typical 15 year old girl who, having had a falling out with her friends and family, met Gary. Gary was kind, understanding, had a nice car, his own apartment and listened to her. Unfortunately, Gary was not what he seemed to be! Chelsea is very quickly isolated from her friends and family and a well-rehearsed and methodical combination of compliments, rewards, threats and punishments is used to groom her and then sexually exploit her. Chelsea's story is played out and examined by the three students who, along with their teacher, attempt to understand what happened to Chelsea and how it could have been prevented.
The 45 minute performance, is based on real life events, is followed by a 30 minute-long actor facilitated post-show talk exploring the issues raised in the play. AlterEgo has worked with the RCMP and with PACT-Ottawa to adapt the content of the play for a Canadian audience to ensure that the stories and language used are relevant and effective.
