Theatre Reviews

Although this play touch­es on two very dark sub­jects (human traf­fick­ing and forced mar­riages), it is both fun­ny and charm­ing. The audi­ence mem­bers” who join the bride-for-sale onstage give the show anoth­er level.

The main char­ac­ter, wear­ing a wed­ding dress, tries to solic­it a hus­band from the audi­ence. She tells us how she came to Win­nipeg to get a hus­band to buy her so that she can set­tle her father’s gam­bling debts: not a fun­ny sit­u­a­tion, but the lead actor car­ries it off with her inno­cent abroad” take and her com­ic timing.

As I watched the play, I found myself think­ing of the many real peo­ple in des­per­ate cir­cum­stances, and my reluc­tance to do more to help them.
