Safe Harbor

Zephyr Theatre
7456 Melrose Ave. Hollywood

More than anything, Sasha wants her mother back. Mikayla dreams of going to space … or just finding a place to call home. June Richards, a sex-trafficking survivor and victim’s advocate, strives to provide a safe harbor for the two young victims. But none of these dreams are as easy — or as safe — as they seem. Tira Palmquist’s Safe Harbor offers a peek through the eyes of the victims into the multifaceted, dark, and tangled web of underground sex trafficking. Each woman’s fight reveals how quickly and easily young women can disappear, and how the notion of freedom itself becomes twisted in a world of desperate choices. Directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks. Artistic Director, Gregg T. Daniel.

"...As Michael, Sasha’s dad, Delane Lee brings vocal power and presence to the role, but his actor-ly machinations are overly visible. Part of the problem is the shorthand nature of the dialogue, which is focused on delineating the social ill it seeks to expose but fails to provide much depth or backstory (we don’t learn anything about Michael’s late wife, for example). Also, the script calls for several performers to double up on roles, but I’m not sure that works to the production’s advantage. Nelson plays several roles that might have been better undertaken by multiple actors."
