This Is My Body: Now Booking
There are “reasonable grounds” to suspect that a Romanian woman, who has been working as a prostitute in the UK, is the victim of human trafficking. She is given 45 days to “reflect and recover”. But will this be enough time to come to terms with the horrors she has endured?
This Is My Body is a powerful new one-woman play written by Martin O’Brien, directed by Paul Jepson and performed by Agata Jarosz which uncovers the shocking reality of human trafficking in the UK, and the failures of the system to adequately respond to and support the victims.
(contains adults themes and scenes of a distressing nature – in some venues 14+ permitted with parental consent)

“A beautifully written play about a tragic, life-changing experience brought to life by the wonderful Agata Jarosz.”
“A very real story of a very real social reality that needs attention on every level: personal, societal, governmental.”
“An immensely powerful portrayal of a young woman’s struggle to face the reality of her situation.”
“A profoundly important piece of theatre. Deeply meaningful and thought-provoking with an incredible performance at its core. This needs a wider audience!”
“Needs to be seen widely.”
“Heartbreaking. A dreadful tragedy”
