ABOUT THE PLAY:

Jane Doe in Wonderland is an original play and survivor talk-back raising awareness and education on domestic sex trafficking, written through the collaboration of anti-sex trafficking nonprofit Game Over, founded by Survivor/Educator Elle Snow, and Playwrights Grace Booth, Kate Tobie, and Erin Johnston. Based on multiple sex trafficking survivors’ testimonials and Elle's educational training, Jane Doe draws parallels between Alice In Wonderland and how young women and men are lured into the world of sex trafficking—a world that exists in all communities throughout America. After a successful first tour in Humboldt County, CA in the spring of 2017, Jane Doe prepares for a tour of Northern California and Southern Oregon in March and April 2018.

Jane Doe is written to be accessible for a high school audience, presenting material in a manner that is neither violent nor explicit . Jane Doe follows the most common case of trafficking: that of a ‘Romeo Pimp’ targeting a rural high school girl by pretending to be her boyfriend before bringing her to an unfamiliar city and trafficking her. In addition to addressing the common ‘red flags’ of this type of trafficker, the play specifically addresses the most commonly asked question: “why don’t victims run?” When people understand the tactics a trafficker employs, their conception of ‘prostitution’ is turned upside-down. When teenagers understand what a ‘pimp’ is, their likelihood of being trafficked drastically diminishes. Our hope is that by raising awareness amongst and educating this demographic, educators and concerned citizens, we can prevent any more of our youth from becoming victims.
