From Marginal to Mainstream

It started as an eight-day beginners' theatre workshop for women who were victims of trafficking. No one could have predicted the outcome.

It started as an eight-day beginners' theatre workshop run by Caryne Chapman Clark for women who were newly rescued victims of trafficking. Ten women from nine different countries. They didn't know each other. They could barely speak English. Just a few basic theatre skills to give them confidence so they could look each other in the eye.

Who could have known that this was to be the start of something?
