Infusion Arts to Present UNDONE at the Kraine Theater, Jan 10-11; Moves to Theatre Row in Feb
The idea that Human Trafficking, the trade in humans -- usually women -- and usually for the purpose of sexual slavery or forced labor, can still exist in the 21st Century is beyond comprehension. But it does -- even in the United States and Great Britain. The painful topic of human trafficking is explored in the new play, UNDONE, premiering at the Kraine Theater, January 10 & 11, 2015 before moving uptown to Theatre Row in February 2015.
UNDONE, a one-woman performance -- is the story of Anne -- a victim of sex trafficking. Anne, while devastated, was still one of the lucky ones... She survived. And now she is determined to help others by telling her story. At times heartbreaking, honest, and even humorous, UNDONE explores what the TV cameras never catch and the reporters never say: the inner pain these unfortunate people go through, even years after. UNDONE is inspirational and informational -- shedding light on multiple causes to end human trafficking and support its victims.
JESSIE FAHAY, artistic director of Ripple Effect Artists, appears in the riveting drama written and directed by BETH NEWBERY, founder of Infusion Arts. Ms. Newbery also supplies the voice-over narrative for the production. Both Ripple Effect Artists and Infusion Arts are international organizations dedicated to creating social awareness and change through the arts, so the UNDONE collaboration is a natural fit.
The intimate Kraine Theater -- located next to New York Theatre Workshop and across the street from LaMama, is an ideal setting for this bold project.
Infusion Arts presents UNDONE Saturday, January 10 at 2:00 & 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, January 11 at 3:00 p.m. at The Kraine Theater, 85 East 4th Street, New York City. BrownPaper Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/920213.
