"ESCLAVAS" A Play in Spanish

The Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts and Teatro Sinergia proudly present "ESCLAVAS," written and directed by Rubén Amavlzca-Murúa. Every year, hundreds of young women are kidnapped using violence, deceit or coercion and forced into prostitution. The victims are held using threats, forced debt, lies, and violence. "ESCLAVAS" tells the history, inspired by a real case, of a young Mexican woman brought to the US under the promise of marriage and forced to work as a prostitute, while her mother desperately searches for her. 

The play is in Spanish.
