Traffic - Emma-Ruth Richards/Nic Chalmers

LCO is working together with the composer Emma-Ruth Richards and writer Nic Chalmers to produce a new music theatre piece centring around the subject of human trafficking.

The theme of this piece deals with the tragic plight of women trafficked as part of the ever increasing sex trade in Europe today. Offered a chance of a better life by unscrupulous organisations this piece tells the story of several women and the situations that they find themselves in . It highlights their plight and shows how they overcome oppression, danger and almost death experiences to fulfil their original goal for a new life.

It is a story of hope in the face of adversity and a look at the moral stance that society holds towards these women and the people who benefit from them.
