Riding the Turnpike
A Search for Fulfillment
explores the variations and definitions of 'voluntary sex workers,' 'Survival sex workers' (those that are drug addicted and would be homeless without it) and women and youth that are 'trafficked.' The story is set in a strip club on the Berlin Turnpike in which four women are involved with prostitution in different ways and for different reasons. The lines between who is being trafficked, who is there of their own free will and who is there for survival are blurred as we watch the women navigate their own desperate situation, each more complex the then the next.
The topics of prostitution and sex trafficking are mired in myths, secrecy and shame. As with much of our work, Turnpike will bring this overwhelming issues down to a personal level. Because our work is based on real woman and first hand interviews, the play will break through many of these myths and give audiences insight into what the sex trade really looks like in our current society.
