Dream Pill

By Rebecca Prichard

EPUB £4.99£4.00

Two children forced into prostitution narrate their harrowing story.

Dream Pill introduces its audience at close quarters to Tunde and Bola, two nine-year old girls sex-trafficked to a UK city. In a claustrophobic basement, they share their child's eye view of the journey they have taken, the people they have encountered and their strange ways, and the objects they have collected. With a naivety, imagination and humour that have survived so far against all odds, they draw in the audience with their childlike fantasies, innocent superstitions and unanswerable questions.

Rebecca Prichard's short play Dream Pill was first performed at Soho Theatre, London, as part of Clean Break's Charged season in November 2010.

Dream Pill is also available in the collection Charged.

Press Quotes
