Silenced Auction by Elizabeth Gannaway

Liz says, “The central story to be shared…is one that I have written from information gained through my travels and research of the horrors of human trafficking and the sex trade, specifically in India. The main character, Natya, is a thirteen-year-old Indian girl who has been tricked into joining and forced into staying in the sex trade. Natya’s story, though technically fictional, exemplifies very similar stories of the twenty-seven million people trapped in slavery today.”

Silenced Auction ran November 30, December 1, 7, and 8, 2012 in Lee E. Eshleman Studio Theater
