Very loosely based on “Moll Flanders”, this story of an orphan’s struggle to rise above her station resonates as much today as it did in Defoe’s time. Born in a contemporary city to a suicidal drug addict, raised in foster care, abused and desperate, Sarah adopts the name Moll when she becomes a sex worker at the age of seventeen. Her effort to leave the sex trade and further her education is thwarted by her employer Dahlia’s machinations to maintain Sarah’s high track hooker status. She finds salvation through caring for her young foster sister Katie, and with the help of her lovers James and Jenny, she tries to navigate her way out of the “Life” and into a future with a family, a home and a hope in hell.  

CONTENT ADVISORY: mature themes, including drug use/overdose, rape, sexual content and profanity.

Moll is produced by arrangement with Talent House, 204A St. George Street, Toronto, ON  M5R 2N5, 416.960.9686, michael@talenthouse.ca
