ZACH BROWN certified reviewer June 21, 2017
Phenomenal, moving, thought provoking, frightening. Sooo good and it really hit me in an unexpected way. Grateful for work such as this that draws not just thoughtful attention to the topic of sex trafficking but a personal and emotional attention to it too.

We should all be brave enough to raise our voice and shine a light on this topic like this woman has with her work. Kudos.... full review

Her piece leaves you with the important message that as long as there is a demand, the supply will be provided. Bravo!... full review

There are horrible things that happen in the world. Horrible things that could be happening right next door or thousands of miles away in another country. Some of us turn a blind eye to them because we don’t see it happening. “Toys” tries to change that with a performance piece about sex trafficking through a metaphor of children’s toys. Christina Evans performs this one woman show to express the pain, anguish, and distress that someone caught in the sex trade experiences. She does this in eerily creepy ways. You can follow the story along and each step of the…process…and is heartbreaking to watch. It really hits you when you see her repeat certain positions over and over again. It makes you realize that this is truly happening and not ju... full review
