Summary: 
“The Walk” is a new play about sex trafficking, by Catherine Cunningham-Huston. It will be produced by Moon Dog Theatre, in association with PACT-Ottawa (Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in Humans). It's the story of three wildly incompatible individuals struggling to write a play about the trafficking of women. CATHERINE ANNE is a quirky social activist nun, STEPHANIE is a neurotic writer, and PETER is an out-of-work film director. From the group’s meetings, the haunting stories of trafficked women emerge. One thread that runs through the play is the story of CELESTINE, a Nigerian woman who was trafficked for eight years in Italy and is now trying to build a life for her infant son in Canada.
