17Percent’s founder presents new short plays for charity

17Percent founder Sam Fentiman-Hall has written two short plays on the subject of trafficking, for London charity Merton Against Trafficking.

The plays tell two stories of different people who have become involved in trafficking in the UK, and will form part of a suite of short plays on the issue, that Sam is developing for use in educational contexts.

You can see a preview of the plays, plus help raise money for the charity, at an event next week, as part of the My Raynes Park festival.
