On her recent theatre stint in NYC
Fruit Trilogy [the new play by Eve Ensler, of The Vagina Monologues fame] is a beautiful piece. It’s actually three plays about the story of women who get their bodies taken away from them, the trauma that causes, and then trying to get them back. It’s also about getting to know yourself, period, almost like facing your traumas and embracing them. My character [and play] is called Avocado, her name’s because she was found in a shipping container and sold as a prostitute when she was 12. Now she’s older and trying to find asylum. It seems unbelievable, but right now in America, a lot of kids are missing. Child trafficking is going on in America, there is a whole movement of modern day slavery. Eve knew about all of this because she works all over the world with girls that have gone through it.
