A Day in the Life
EXCITING NEWS! The cast and creators of A DAY IN THE LIFE are honored to be named some of New York’s New Abolitionists. We are proud to fight alongside this inspiring team of activists and survivors.
Written by Katie Cappiello and featuring the young actors/activists of The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company, A Day in the Life, reveals the truth about sex-trafficking and the impact of “pimp and ho” culture on lives of girls. Journey into lives of five teens whose paths have been forever changed by commercial sexual exploitation: Nadia attends her school’s annual Pimps and Hoes party, Eve’s father is arrested for solicitation, Kaitlyn’s cousin has been on the streets for 4 years with no support from family, Desiree prepares to celebrate her Sweet 16 after finally escaping her pimp, and Sonia is bounced from foster home to foster home as she fights keep her head above water. These powerful stories, inspired by the real experiences of real girls, will give audiences an authentic look at the complex, often misunderstood reality of domestic sex trafficking and the ways it touches us all.
