      WORLD PREMIERE

      A new play about child trafficking

      Matiness for High School, Universities, Adult Organizations 

      written by

      Mary Bonnett

      MONEY MAKE’M SMILE is the journey of a young woman and man whose lives get caught up in sex trafficking, end tragically were it not for a mistaken interception by Fate and Destiny.  Girl and Boy are given another chance.  Restarting from birth, they revisit their old lives on earth and watch their relationships develop with family, friends, new loves and choices that create their demise.  In a bargain with the universe, their lives will be put back on earth and set on another path if they can make different choices. In the end, it is not the characters who decide their fate but the audience.

       

      Created for high school and university students, also adults organizations involved with the issue; MONEY MAKE’M SMILE is an allegorical wild journey through space and time…funny, unique, poignant, powerful…exploring the world of sex trafficking, gender roles, media, vulnerability and human transformation or not…
