Girl meets boy, a typical scene at the mall. Boy dates girl, then things go wrong. Adriana should have stayed in school and listened to her friend, but Estefan is so handsome and so convincing. The dating, the dancing, the drinking and the drugs – Adriana soon finds her life mirroring the gangster rap and hip-hop dance that surrounds her, trapped in a life of crime from which she cannot escape. Broken Promises ends with us all wondering how we can help stop the theft of innocence. Guest speakers and a resource fair will accompany the two-week run at Milagro. Before and after the Sunday matinee on Jan 17, non-profits such as Lifeworks NW, Planned Parenthood and APANO will share information and resources in the Zócalo. After several of the performances, guest speakers will join the actors for a post-show discussion. Each night will feature a representative from various agencies that provide services and resources for women as well as attorneys at law focused on sex trafficking.
