Full casting has been announced for the world premiere production of Trade, which opens at the Omnibus Theatre on 15 February 2022.
Set in Serbia, Bosnia and the UK, Ella Dorman-Gajic’s Trade is a thought-provoking, unflinching new play exploring morality and power within the European sex-trafficking industry. Directed by Maddy Corner the cast is Tanya Cubric (Jana), Ojan Genc (Stefan/Nikola) and Eleanor Roberts (Katarina/Elena).
Previously scheduled to run at the Vault Festival in London, the show has found a new home at the Omnibus Theatre in Clapham South London. It will run from 15 – 19 February and is one of 11 productions rescheduled at the venue.
Trade was shortlisted for the 2020 Snoo Wilson Award and Slam Soaps New Writing Competition (out of 1,500 entries). It was developed at Drama Centre London and streamed online to an overwhelmingly positive response. All performances will also be captioned in English and Serbian.
10% of all ticket sales will go to Unseen, a leading UK charity fighting modern slavery. Today, over 20 million people are trafficked around the world. That number is higher than in all of history. 70% of those are female. This brave new play puts a brutal underground world centre stage.
A post-show discussion will take place on 19th February at 3.30pm. This will be with playwright Ella, Tanya and 2 people from the linked charity Unseen, Olivia Charlton and Eva Daly who are from the support services team, and work directly with survivors at Unseen.
