Fair Trade

Updated: Aug 8

A Play in Two Acts by Seth Freeman


Presented by Proper Hijinx Productions

Featuring Natalie Burkhart, Cynthia Summers, Angel Somarriba, Christian Black, Gina Gowtz, Megan Guerra, and Josuê Summers


"The play explores how we decide what the things in our world are worth – our possessions, but also the parts of our bodies, and even our lives. Is there a price at which you would sell your car or your home? Thousands of dollars, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands? Would you ever sell your dog? At what price? What if someone offered you a million dollars for a part of your body, a finger, say, or a kidney? Would you sell a body part for tens of millions of dollars? Hundreds of millions? Tune into the reading of Fair Trade for some surprising answers." -Seth Freeman
