'Broken Promises' addresses human sex trafficking
Pacific Universitys Center for Gender Equity will present Broken Promises, a bilingual play that reveals the truth of how quickly and easily teens are ensnared in the world of sex trafficking.
Produced by Teatro Milagro, a Portland-based Latino theater, arts and culture organization, Broken Promises is based on the true life stories of girls from underserved communities who are lured into prostitution.
Desperate for money, four teens living on the edge gamble their lives on internet porn and prostitution.
Before she knows it, Adriana is trapped in a life from which she cannot escape, or can she?
Broken Promises is set amidst the backdrop of urban Latin hip-hop music, rhyme and choreography.
The play was written by Olga Sanchez, the artistic director of Milagro from 2003 to 2015.
Teatro Milagro has been touring nationally with Broken Promises during 2016.
