‘Body & Sold’ Director’s Note


Body and Sold 32SOn stage for three performances at Lab Theater this weekend is Body & Sold, a timely docu-play about childhood prostitution and human trafficking. It is presented as part of a very special grant project partnership with the Lee County Public School System and Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships, Inc.

“Through this project we will be building awareness among the highest risk population for falling Moye 100to human traffickers – youth aged 11-14,” notes director Kathleen Moye. “We will empower students to teach each other, peer-to-peer, about the risks, signs, and resources available to them.”

The tutelage doesn’t stop there.

“Our community cast features high school and college performers, who have had an opportunity to not only participate in this meaningful production but to study alongside more seasoned performers, whom you may recognize from previous productions at the Lab,” Moye continues.
