The Grace Theatre Workshop, Inc. Presents
Comfort
Monday, August 04, 2014 through Friday, August 08, 2014

a New Play... exposing abuse against women

Length: 1 hr 15 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

"Comfort" deals with the horrific acts of violence towards "Comfort Women" or "sex slaves" by the Japanese during World War II. The Japanese government would kidnap young girls as young as 14 years old from various countries including China and Korea and send them to their soldiers in the battlefield to "comfort" them. Details from some survivors attest to being raped fifty to two hundred times a day. But, more so, the play dares to bring forth the difficult subject of sex trafficking and physical abuse of women world-wide. The current political issues around this topic are expressed through movement and straight dialogue. In the play, the leading character "Peter" must produce a documentary film about Comfort Women, but his boss disagrees with Peter's chosen subject matter. In the meantime, Peter meets "Roksun", a comfort woman, in his dream. With a great mix between experimental movement & poetry about serious political matter the play presents an important subject in a palpable artistic way.
